This module is design to increase your key knowledge of drips, drops and dribbles to support children’s play and learning while fulfilling the learning potential of water.  It will enhance adult interaction with children, through exploring intentionality.

In this course you will learn to:

  • understand the potential uses of very small amounts of water in children’s learning journeys
  • explain and justify the inclusion of drips, drops and dribbles in nature-based programs
  • apply the 10 things you’ve learnt about drips, drops and dribbles to improve the quality of your interaction with children.
