New MSc Education (Early Childhood Practice and Froebel) at the University of Edinburgh

We are delighted to announce that two information sessions will take place on the 13th and 15th March 2019, providing information about the University of Edinburgh’s new MSc Education, Froebel Pathway programme.

These sessions will be a chance to speak with Dr. Lynn McNair, the Pathway Coordinator, and Dr. Marlies Kustatscher, a Lecturer on it. They will share why the University is offering this pathway and who it is for. Lynn will talk about the philosophy of Friedrich Froebel and his contributions to early childhood education. They will also introduce the core modules and optional modules that can be taken.  The session will be a chance to ask any questions about the pathway, for example about when courses take place, full-time and part-time study options, who you will be working with, and what scholarship opportunities exist.

FACE-TO-FACE INFORMATION SESSION: Wednesday 13th March, 16:30-17:30 (GMT).  

This session takes place at the Moray House School of Education, Patersons Land G43.

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
Hope you can help

Lynn McNair (and Jane)
