Ever wondered why a child may line up all their toys, or perhaps sit in front of the washing machine watching it go around and around and around? Schemas in children’s play are an important concept when it comes to their development and making sense of the world around them. It is worth taking the time to understand patterns of play, to help you spot and facilitate them.

This whole day early years training will support you to:
• extend your knowledge of schemas to inform teaching and planning
• explore and identify a variety of schematic behaviours
• identify ways of involving families to support their children’s schematic play.
