Seminar: Where are the babies? Exploring outdoor provision for under twos
27 Mar 2020
Whilst there has been a growing interest in outdoor learning within ECEC (Early Childhood Education and Care), little is known about provision for under twos. Similarly, despite increasing public concern about young children’s connection and relationship with the natural world, the outdoor experiences of babies and toddlers has been largely ignored. This free seminar will share initial findings from a research project funded by the Froebel Trust focused on outdoor provision in babyrooms in Kent. It also offers a space for other working in this area to network and share. The seminar is aimed at researchers, practitioners and any other interested individuals.
