Based on Alistair's extensive experience in school, this book brings together his knowledge of Continuous Provision and the high level impact and engagement that it can bring.
Alistair was head teacher of a very successful three form entry infant school and Early Years Unit for 10 years. Alongside his headship he worked as an EYFS consultant working with a diverse range of settings to help them to enhance their EYFS practice. In 2009 Alistair left headship and went into full time consultancy. Alistair's expertise has meant that he has been invited to work with individuals, settings and both Nationally and Internationally. He has written on the subject of EYFS for a wide variety of publications. In September 2010 he set up a blog where he posts examples of the work that he does alongside activity ideas, planning formats and policies. The blog is constantly updated with new ideas and initiatives. You can find out more at: abcdoes.com
This detailed, step-by-step approach helps the practitioner to see exactly what level of skills are offered by each provision, so that they can map teaching to the required level. With clear descriptions and plenty of photos of children learning, the book clearly explains what could be a complex concept. -- Sarah Brew * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
