An opportunity to complete Element One of the Froebel Trust Short Courses. An introduction to the principles and practice of the Froebelian approach to early childhood education

On this practical course you’ll find out how Froebel’s principles are relevant to your practice today. The two day course will build on your skills and develop your understanding of a Froebelian approach.

It’s an inspiring and supportive course which gives everyone the chance to reflect on how babies and young children learn. The course explores how carers and educators can support, guide and extend children’s learning and development.

Sign up for this special two day course being held in Cardiff - led by Froebel Trust Travelling Tutors, Dr Stella Louis (Nursery World Trainer of The Year 2023) and Paula Lester.

This introductory course is for everyone who works with babies and young children – regardless of your level of experience or prior qualification. All participants will receive a completion certificate for their CPD records at the end of the course.
