Playful Planning: Enriching your Emergent Curriculum Approach

November 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Playful learning experiences promote a sense of curiosity, exploration, and confidence, which are what we all strive to achieve when we plan for our early childhood environment and our children’s experiences. To achieve this, one of the most popular and best approaches is the emergent curriculum approach. This approach let’s the child lead the playful experiences and follow their own learning path. Our job, as early childhood educators, is to observe their interests and plan to either compliment or extend on these interests. Being intentional on how we prepare a responsive environment  is a key element to emergent planning. How we plan activities, play experiences, provocations and invitations and  make changes to our environment all depends on the dynamics of our group of children and our ability to really listen, observe and learn about the children’s deeper interests and abilities. Let us walk alongside the children and join them in their journeys of wonder, play and curiosity. Join me as we discuss planning strategies that work for everyone. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to planning for children’s play, so let’s explore what your journey is with the children and how you can plan for play!
