Conserving Creativity in
Early Years

Thursday 17th October

6.30pm

42 Market Place, Reading

RG1 2DE 

 

What single idea would change education in the UK?

We asked Fellows across the South Central region to propose ideas (and host events) that they believe can change education for the better. 


The idea: Conserving Creativity in Early Years

Kathryn Solly FRSA will discuss the future of high quality early years’ education and care in the maintained sector.

Quality play and learning in the maintained early years' sector are at risk. Our future citizens, who learn through high quality play indoors and out, are beginning with limited horizons. Our future engineers, artists, lawyers, scientists and entrepreneurs will lack their broad base of interactive experience they develop through process based learning.

Froebel created the kindergarten to nurture high quality play and learning. If such opportunities are not available, what creative possibilities will we see in their future lives? How, in the 21st century, do we ensure the rich possibilities of play and the ideas sown by the pioneers such as Steiner, Montessori, McMillan, Isaacs and Froebel are furthered and put into practice? Join us for an engaging and interactive session on how to set about conserving and encouraging creativity and play in the early years’ curriculum.
