'This book empowers students to understand the crucial role of observatin for understanding, planning for and educating early years children'-Early Years Educators
'This is a practical text that will be very useful for practitioners working towards early years professional status (EYPS)Early Years Update
Very useful book, will recommend to team.
Thorough and understandable. Past students have relied heavily on this text to give them a knowledgeable but easy to follow reference for Child Development observations
Very useful for students going out on placement to undertake assessments as part of their assignments. I have also recommended this as a starter text for MA Education students who are unfamiliar with early years settings.
really good for new EYE level 3 diploma
Useful book for both undergraduate early years students
Gives a clear review of the importance of observations, different observation techniques that can be used and the text is supported with tasks for the learner to complete throughout each chapter.
An excellent resource for early years students getting to grips with child observations as an assessment method. The many examples, photographs and case studies help to link theory to practice and to clarify the purpose for observations. Highly recommended.
As the new EYE qualification as come into force, this covers in depth the reasons why we need to assess and observe children's progress and how to forward planning.
Extremely useful for our students in terms of EYFS practice.
An essential text to support students’ knowledge and understanding of observation in practice. Very current yet uses tried and tested techniques. Clearly written with good examples that can be easily adapted. I will be adopting this book in my teaching of a new course PGCE EYTS.
I think this book is essential for learners who observe children in a setting, I would highly recommend it
I highly recommend this text for students from level 3-5 working specifically with. Early years. It is current but incorporates traditional techniques as well as current snapshot techniques utilised in early years provisions. It is clearly written, wonderful examples and identifies how to sue observations to understand development, adapt the curriculum and to carry out research- excellent.
Adopted as part of a newly implemented child observation module. A sound text thank you!
A very easy book with quite a broad range of information and theory. I also reccomended this book for my child in society module.
Good text for child development module. which will support student observations of children.
Level 2 , 3 and 4 excellent book
The book is in use for my graduade students, (B.Ed. and M.Ed.) as recommended reading for both groups. They find it easy to use og accessible. This book is a addition to our reading material and good for our students to apply to their practis.
This is an excellent and informative book which provides clear links between policy, theory, and practice in relation to children's observations.
Fantastic and informative book especially for newcomers and students. Definitely an essential reading for the students.
