Curiosity and Wonder of Heuristic Play and Treasure Baskets: Infant and Toddler Play Explorations

April 10, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Curiosity and Wonder of Heuristic Play and Treasure Baskets: Infant and Toddler Play Explorations

Infants and Toddles explore the world around them with awe and wonder. They explore with a zest for curiosity and exploration. They deserve an environment that supports this natural process of learning. They deserve Play! Creating responsive environments for infants and toddlers is slightly different then how we would create a responsive environment for older children. We need to take into consideration their physical, sensory and neurological needs. One of the most impactful way of supporting infants and toddlers in their play explorations is through heuristic play and treasure baskets! This approach creates hands-on, self-directed play experiences for children to dive deep into their own learning process. Let’s discuss what heuristic play is and how we can create treasure baskets and sensory experiences that are meaningful and relevant for our young learners. Participants will develop an awareness of this approach to play and engage in reflective practices and discussions about how they can make children’s learning visible. Go beyond a basic infant toddler space and create a space of magic, wonder and inspiration!
