This revised and updated edition helps practitioners to understand the distinction in the 2012 revised EYFS between prime and specific areas of development for four-year olds.
This book gives advice on how to:
- Provide open-ended situations to support creativity and critical thinking
- Engage the fours in questions, answers and genuine conversations
- Support early mathematical skills with a focus on first-hand experiences
- Develop literacy skills
This series supports early years practitioners, but each book recognises the importance of partnership with families.
