Babies process their environments with all their senses. They learn by seeing, feeling, touching, smelling, and tasting the toys and furnishings in their classrooms, as well as anything else within reach. How can we build on this natural curiosity? By intentionally creating enticing learning spaces, we can invite deeper engagement, sustain interest over time, and promote a sense of intrigue in our youngest children to discover and learn more.
In this edWebinar, we’ll explore low-cost and no-cost ways for infant and toddler teachers to apply these three I’s—inviting, interesting, and intriguing—to transform their own indoor and outdoor settings for people under three.
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers of infants and toddlers and child development and childcare professionals. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
