EYC training – Schemas: Patterns of Children’s Play via elearning

An elearning course about the foundations of schemas and theories behind them.

This is an elearning course, which can be started at anytime.

This course has been designed to cover the foundations of schemas and then extend your learning further providing more depth and knowledge on the topic.

If you are fascinated by children’s repeated patterns of behaviour then this course will explain what a schema is and provide detail on the theories behind them. The value of schemas in supporting children's learning and development is explored.

You may have noticed a range of different behaviours, from transporting objects from one place to another to children covering things or wrapping them up. The different types of schema are explained

Observations inform your planning and so next you will explore the value of schemas to help plan activities and provide opportunities for next steps in each child's development.

An enabling environment plays a key part in supporting children to experience a range of opportunities and to be active in their learning, in this section you will explore ideas and reflect on your current practice.

Parents have a key role to play in supporting schemas at home, in the final part you can reflect on how you can ensure you raise parents' awareness and provide ideas that can be shared.
