If you really want to make displays an integral part of your learning environment they have to be planned and created so that they’re constantly in use by children and adults alike (Kirstine Beeley)

This empowering and fascinating course explores many aspects of the invaluable role of stimulating displays as a focal point for supporting and enhancing children’s ownership of the learning process. Practitioners will gain confidence through engaging in reflective discussions and evaluating existing practice by using the Enable Children Dynamic Displays audit tool.
