Loose Parts for Under Threes
Become comfortable with the concept of loose parts that are developmentally appropriate for Infant and toddler classrooms. As seen through the eyes of classroom teachers and children, we will explore a journey of loose parts that enrich classrooms of younger children. Get inspired by this workshop and learn how to start your own loose parts journey tailored to the developmental needs of children under the age of three. We will also touch on larger loose parts items that you can use for your outdoor classrooms to get ideas flowing!
