Friedrich Froebel 1782-1852

Froebel set up his own school in Griesheim in Thuringia. He was 34.
In 1818 he moved the school to Keilau in Prussia and began to put his education theories into practice. Margaret McMillian 1860-1931 The Foundation Phase Creative Development
Physical Development
Knowledge and Understanding of the World
Welsh Development
Language Literacy and Communication Skills
Personal and Social Development, Well-Being and Cultural Diversity In Wales children are taught bilingually or through Welsh medium schools. From the ages of 3-7 years schools and nurseries use the seven area's of learning called the 'Foundation Phase'. The Seven area's of learning in the Foundation Phase are: Describing the children as dirty, ill-fed and wretched. Margaret McMillian was appalled on her visits to schools by the poverty children lived in. McMillan suggested that all children from two to seven years of age who are in day care settings should be looked after by fully qualified specialist teachers. She began to advise parents on hygiene and nutrition and became a local expert in the health, education and well-being of young children. Estyn - Outdoor Learning 2011 Estyn did an evaluation of learning in the outdoors for children under five in the Foundation Phase and reported that:

In most cases schools and settings are making at least adequate use of the outdoors and children's learning generally benefits. Susan Isaacs 1885-1948 Susan Isaac set up a school called the Malting House School, which put the emphasis on children's curiosity, their emotional needs and on the importance of language The school room opened onto a garden where there was a summer house, sand-pit, see-saw and hutches for rabbits. Each child had a little plot to cultivate and there were fruit trees.
Susan Isaacs believed in the importance of play, that, with gentle guidance, children could make sense of the world for themselves. Gweithgaredd - Cennin Pedr Plannu
Activity - Planting Daffodils The Children's Work Theorists By Jacqueline Handley Introduction Theorists
The Foundation Phase
The Childrens Work Frobel continued.... Conclusions and Recommendations From the Estyn report it says that practitioners are not using the outdoors as much as they could and one of the way to change this is by appropriate training and guidance. All staff should be involved in the planning of activities and know what the aim of each lesson is looking to teach the children. Evaluation of lessons is important too in order to improve lessons for the benefit of children.

My recommendations would be to follow the recommendations References The work of these theorists helped to guide the way children are being taught today by the implementation of the 'Foundation Phase' in 2008.

Practioners are encouraged to use the outdoors for as many activities as possible. The Children's Work Froebel was the first person to articulate a comprehensive theory on how children learn and give detailed instructions for putting it into practice A Multi-Cultural Experience Siarad Tu Fas:
