What does research in neuroscience and child development tell us about how young children learn best? What should effective teaching and learning in nursery and reception look like?
This is a course for school leaders and head teachers (particularly for those without first-hand teaching experience), working in or having responsibility for the Early Years Foundation Stage, Phase Leaders and Advisory Teachers who want to know more about effective early years pedagogy. It covers essential aspects of physical, emotional and cognitive development from birth to seven and the role of adults in providing the positive relationships and enabling environments that best support and extend young children’s natural love of learning.
School leaders will leave this course with:
- tools to audit and improve their provision for young children’s learning and the quality of teaching
- more confidence in their own leadership responsibilities with regards to early years
