EYFS: New Practitioners
Teachers and Nursery Nurses new to EYFS working in the Early Years
Outline of event:
'Children are born ready and able to learn'. (EYFS 2012)
This course is for practitioners who are new to working in early years.
The EYFS is underpinned by the four themes, The Unique Child, Learning and Development, Positive Relationships and Enabling Environments that all impact on a child's Learning and Development.
This three-day course (with one day-long session each term) will support new practitioners with the implementation of the EYFS into practice. Attendance at all 3 parts is highly recommended as each session builds on the previous one and a gap task will be included between the sessions.
Learning and Teaching Outcomes:
This three part course covers the following elements:
* Creating an EYFS learning environment
* The prime and specific areas of learning and development
* Looking at the unique child - EYFS development matters
* The EYFS planning cycle - observation, assessment and planning
* Working with parents/carers and other agencies/services
* Inclusive practice
* The EYFS Profile (and data collection) and the Characteristics of Effective Learning
We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes
Practitioners are requested to have knowledge of the complete EYFS documents and bring copies with them on the day including the current Development Matters and Statutory Framework.
