Early Years Literacy

Using the rich stimulus of the outdoor environment, Early Years Literacy Outdoors looks at creating spaces and professional practice that encourage conversation, cooperative play, and imagination in young children. Tailored to either EYFS Literacy or CfE Literacy, this course is ideal for an early years setting (or group of settings) looking to explore the opportunities that outdoor spaces offer for early literacy learning.
