Presented by Philip Butler
Planning for infants is not about the outcomes or developmental milestones. Sure, they are a part of the process, but there is a lot more to it if our plans are to be meaningful to the individual and groups of children. This webinar would best benefit those who are newer to environments for infants and want to understand better the planning cycle for infants and what this could look like in practice. Our discussions will include how the environment can be the 'Third Teacher', how we can identify and plan for schematic play, and how to set up meaningful, manageably planning cycles for infants.
Completing What does programming and planning for Infants look like? Schemas, environments and lots of relationships... will contribute one hour of PD that aligns with the NESA (NSW) criteria for Elective PD and addresses:
The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: APST 1: Know the children and how they learn
