Calling all previous students of the Edinburgh Froebel Course

Dear Froebelians

As you may know, Jane (Whinnett) and I are involved in developing a Froebel Masters. We are currently putting the paperwork together for the University board; we wondered if you would be interested in writing a testimonial (you can decide on the word length) on the impact the Froebel Course has had on your practice and whether or not you would see any value in the development of a Froebel Masters.  Unfortunately time is of the essence as the University board sits quite soon -at this board (scheduled for the first week in March) they will decide whether to pursue the Froebel Masters or not.

Please send your testimonial to lynnjmcnair@hotmail.co.uk
Hope you can help

Lynn McNair (and Jane)

Pete Moorhouse, who last year led an inspiring Saturday Seminar for the Network on the topic of woodwork, has kindly shared with us, this very interesting article that he has written about Froebel and the occupation of woodwork which you can download as a pdf.

His new book “Learning Through Woodwork; Introducing Creative Woodwork in the Early Years.” Is available now from all good booksellers.
