This title is part of a brand new series, edited by Jennie Lindon, which takes a fresh approach to planning by ensuring that children’s interests are at the heart of all plans.
Planning for the Early Years: Homes and Families is packed with adaptable ideas that can be extended for older children, or more focussed for the under threes. It focuses on the prime areas of learning, especially the development of early language, defined in the 2011 Tickell review of the EYFS as the foundations for all learning.
This title will allow you to:

"This is not a book that tells you what to do with children or about finished products to take home to show parents, it is very much in keeping with the EYFS revisions and would be helpful for practitioners old and new who need ideas to help with projects, but who do not need telling how to do it!"
