Overview

As humans we make lots of connections which help to shape who we are. These connections can be with the natural world, the built world, the social world and the virtual world.

Before Covid-19 there was a lot of scope for early years settings to make more use of locally available resources. For some children, the pandemic has meant that they have had very limited opportunity to develop strong connections with the world around them. This course explores how locality and communities can be powerful tools for making connections, extending language and promoting learning and development.

Course aims

• To recognise, celebrate and engage with the opportunities that the locality can offer for motivating and meaningful learning

• To understand that using first-hand experiences in the community encourages holistic learning across all areas of learning, whilst being a strong vehicle for expanding language development

• To acknowledge and utilise the cultural capital that each child and family brings to the setting

• To explore the free and inexpensive resources that can be found on your doorstep
