Recognise and Enhance Schematic Play, So You Can Provide the Best Resources and Activities to Better Support and Challenge Children's Learning and Development
Children’s schematic play is fascinating and incredibly informative.
If you can learn to identify schema, and really understand the activities and resources that motivate children to learn, you can then provide the very best environments for them.
Many practitioners contact me for training on schematic play because they may know about some aspects, but are not sure how this can be implemented in their setting.
The goal of this course is to examine the nine most useful schema and to give you effective strategies for supporting children’s learning using this knowledge. You will be able to determine how children are thinking, so you can then stretch and challenge them.
Get Access To A Unique Program That Will Help You Easily Identify Children's Schematic Play And Personalise Your Activities For Your Children
All of us, I’m sure, want to improve the support we give to our children. And we want to do it in a way that’s fast, efficient and effective.
But it can be really difficult to take time out of our working day to attend long training courses, or to go events “after hours” when we’re tired and just want to get home.
That’s why I’ve created this online course to teach you what you need to know in simple, bite sized chunks. And that you can access at your own convenience whenever and wherever you want.
I’ve been teaching Schematic Play in face-to-face training courses for many years, and I’ve now put the best of that knowledge and feedback from practitioners into this Schema For Practitioners Course.

Is This Course For Me?
The course is designed for Early Years Practitioners who want to have in-depth knowledge about children’s Schematic Play.
But it’s not for everyone.
What I don’t want is for you to sign up and then never make use of any of the resources – that would be a huge shame..
The first module is around 60 minutes of detailed training all about schematic play on video. You’ll need to dedicate time to go through the videos and also into planning and implementing what you learn in your own settings.
After that, modules 2, 3 and 4 are around 20 – 30 minutes long, each with an activity for you to complete at the end.
Of course, if you want to invest more time in the course, that’s great. You’ll get even more out of it.
And you can do it at your own pace.
If you need to take more time to go through the course or take a week off to focus on implementation then that’s great too. You have lifetime access to the training and can come back to it whenever you want.
But please only sign up if you’re really going to use the material.
If you can do that, and if you really want to achieve the improvements in support for your children and have a thorough understanding of the deep level learning that goes hand in hand with Schematic Play, then this course could be for you.
