Froebel Certificate course at University of Roehampton

The Froebel Certificate course will run again in 2014-2015 at the University of Roehampton, London.

At a time of rapid change in policy and practice in the early years there is an increasing need for practitioners to be able to understand, articulate and justify an informed pedagogy. The Froebel Certificate course focuses on key principles underpinning Froebelian practice in a range of early childhood settings and contexts. It brings together historical and contemporary study of Froebel’s principles and practice in order to help students to reflect on and develop their own ideas and practice.

The Certificate is offered at Level 4 and Level 6 and the cost is £440, including a 50% subsidy from the Froebel Trust.

The course begins with an introductory session in early October. Application forms and a list of draft dates are available from our website:
