Links to Theorists:
- This learning experience can be linked to Gesell’s theories. He believes that brain development, gross motor and fine motor capabilities occur most automatically, without learning or instruction.
- This learning experience can be linked to Piaget’s theories. He believes the child is an active learner and that the child must be given opportunities to explore, discover and experiment. These principals underpin all cognitive development.
