What Does It Mean to Be Four? What Every Practitioner Needs to Understand About the Development of Four-Year Olds

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.
