Supporting Under 3s Through Discovery Play

Babies and Toddlers learn through discovery. As they explore the world around them, they make connections and create understandings. Sometimes during this process they do things that drive us crazy (such as pulling all of the blocks off the shelf or tipping out baskets of toys or throwing things!) By understanding and facilitating discovery play in meaningful and authentic ways, we provide under 3s with the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge and make sense of the world. In this session, attendees will learn about schemas–what are they, why are they important, and how do I plan with them in mind? We will also explore the concept of treasure baskets and heuristic play, as well as the importance of sensory play for infants and toddlers. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the way in which infants and toddlers play, and practical strategies and ideas for supporting that play in their program and environments.

Certificates

While we hope you attend our sessions for the content, we know certificates are important. A link to a short evaluation is shared at the end of each live on-line session. Complete this evaluation, and a personalized PDF certificate of participation is generated and emailed to you. In-service training requirements vary depending on location. Below, you’ll find info on where our certificates are currently accepted. We’re always working to gain approval in more locations.


United States


Canada

  • Alberta | We have been informed that Alberta does not have a pre-approval process and that our certificates contain the required information to be accepted as in-service training.
  • British Columbia | Explorations Early Learning was told that in BC, “professional development is assessed on a case by case basis after the workshop has been completed, and the certificate has been received.” Our certificates contain all the information required for approval, and our sessions cover topics that are traditionally approved.

Australia

We have not yet had time to dig into approval requirements for in-service trainings in any Australian states. It’s on the to-do list.
