Product Overview

Have you ever wondered about the origins of the kindergarten and the influence of Froebel on early years practice? What did Froebel mean by a garden for children? Why did he believe that play is central in young children ''s learning?

Bringing the Froebel Approach to your Early Years Practice looks at the founder of the kindergarten and his profound influence on provision and practice for young children today. The Froebelian approach is not a method but includes distinctive principles which shape and guide practice.

This book includes:

  • a discussion of key Froebelian principles such as play, imagination, creativity, learning through self activity and making connections
  • an examination of block play and how this can be used in contemporary settings
  • Froebel ''s ideas on nature and outdoor play and why these are fundamental to young children ''s learning
  • examples of innovative practice and ideas for further reflection .

This convenient guide will help Early Years practitioners, students and parents to really understand what the Froebelian approach can offer their setting and children.
