We will explore how open-ended materials can inspire creativity and lessen conflict in infants and toddlers. Through hands-on experiences with materials provided, children’s theories and problem-solving can be supported by providing opportunities for them to build on their existing ideas. We will share with pedagogical documentation of how children in different programs have used loose parts, and how many common themes and ideas reoccur. The goal of this workshop is to shift ideas on how we see materials, the intentionality of the materials in your own programs, and to challenge the image of an infant and toddler.
Suitable for all early learning and child care professionals.
