Teachable moments

Friday, February 3, 2023 13:30 - 14:30

Interactions are essential to outcomes and crucial to providing a high-quality learning environment. When we use teachable moments we provide children with meaningful interactions and facilitate learning. A ‘teachable moment’ is an opportunity that arises during a child’s play and exploration. An attuned key person observes and recognises that they could add to the play and exploration, providing a shared thought, further insight, an additional resource or a challenge.

Key takeaways:

  • How to deepen learning by providing teachable moments
  • How to provide an environment that supports teachable moments
  • Recognising the important role of the adult within play
  • How to add to children’s activities and experiences to provide challenge
  • Why tuning in to the child is valuable and essential to growth and development
