A magical place to learn

A magical place to learn


This course, aimed at childcare practitioners working with young children, looks at creating a themed indoor environment that gives children the opportunity to explore and learn both independently and with adult guidance. ‘A magical place to learn’ takes a fairy tale theme as the starting point for a variety of exciting activities and experiences.


Young children are naturally curious and want to explore and learn. If a childcare practitioner creates an environment that is richly resourced with activities, children will learn naturally from all that is around them. It is the practitioner’s skill in creating the environment that is important, and then providing the appropriate support for each child so they get the most from the activities. Wherever possible, children should be fully involved in creating their own place to learn and contribute their ideas and artwork.

This course will guide you through the process of creating a themed indoor environment, using fairy tales as an example. Upon completion of the course, practitioners will have the tools, confidence, and enthusiasm to bring their ideas to life.
