Early Years

Globe Education works with local schools, teachers, early years practitioners to create magical, inspiring and playful learning for 3-5 year olds. 

Nursery First Steps Module

We run play-filled, practical sessions that focus on key social skills for young learners.

Over six weeks, your young classes are encouraged to engage with the feelings, choices and worlds of characters from The Tempest. The play becomes a framework for creative and emotional engagement with the characters’ physical surroundings and dilemmas that they face.

This may include active games, imaginative role-play and group discussions on:

  • Sharing
  • The feelings of others
  • Communication skills
  • Numeracy skills

Early Years teachers and support staff attend a Continuing Professional Development session at the Globe before the module starts. You then work in partnership with Globe Education Practitioners throughout the course to develop creative practice across the Early Years Framework.
