Enacting Froebelian principles in practice


University of Roehampton

The aim of this project is to explore the possibilities to protect and extend Froebelian principles in practice. The research will consider:


  • How does localism impact on enactment of Froebelian principles?
  • How has practitioner' early years education and training informed their understanding and enactment of learning through play?
  • What form of policy intervention in early years practitioners’ education and/ or training could protect and extend Froebelian principles in practice?

The project data will provide qualitative insights into the contemporary enactment of Froebelian philosophy in early year’s education, the role of theory in practice, practitioner views on learning through play and their perceptions of their professional status.
