Heuristic Play and Treasure Baskets

October 25, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


What is heuristic play? What are treasure baskets? How does this style of learning positively impact infants and toddler development? 

Heuristic play is any approach to problem solving, learning, or discovery that employs a practical method. It is learning by trial and error. 

Heuristic play theory was developed by Elinor Goldschmied in the 1990’s. She realized that babies often prefer to play with ordinary objects rather than toys. Adults can easily observe the young child’s thinking while interacting with these learning tools. Heuristic play emphasizes what infants and toddlers can do rather than what they are unable to do. 

This self-paced workshop is to help create an awareness and understanding of heuristic play and how it impacts infants and toddlers as well as the child care profession. 

 Location: 2.5 Hours Online Self-Paced Workshop
