Schematic Patterns in Play
Do you work with children under 3 in a Childminding or Creche setting? Do you struggle to find things to put into a learning story or emergent planning? Then this programme is for you!
Schematic play happens when babies, toddlers and young children are involved in repeated actions
or certain behaviours as they explore the world around them and try to find out how things work.
We call these specific actions or behaviours ‘Schemas’
What is included? The ‘Schematic Patterns in Play’ CPD programme identifies and explains the 9
main play schemas. Sample activities to build into child-led planning are included for each schema.
You will also see examples of how to write a learning story with a schema focus and many images of
play schemas in action. Practical handouts are included.
