- How do we understand young children’s learning and development and use this to form the core of high quality provision and practice?
- How do we interpret this into an enabling environment which supports the quality of learning and development for all children?
- How do we observe the context of children’s learning and development and use this to monitor their progress in the Foundation Stage?
Di worked with the group as a ‘community of learners’ undertaking practitioner based research and produced an exemplification of the Characteristics of Learning through child- initiated play and activities.
The exemplification includes the wonderful Learning Stories that were observed as the children followed their interests and ideas.
What people said;
“The initiative has given me a deeper understanding of children as thinkers and learners”
“It provided a fantastic opportunity and the time to develop a shared understanding with other schools. Without the initiative this would have been very hard to do”
“The initiative really got me thinking. It inspired me. I found it especially valuable to work together with others”
“Excellent initiative designed by a supremely knowledgeable, experienced consultant, who values ‘whole child’”
