Event Description
Understanding how young children learn is pivotal in influencing our pedagogical approaches to enable progress.

In the new non-statutory Development Matters document, pedagogy and executive function are clearly noted as two of the seven key features of effective Early Years practice. Find out how these will impact on Early Years practice and how they can be best supported within a high-quality Early Years provision.

This two-part course will enable practitioners to understand what pedagogy underpins their ethos in the EYFS and explore how children learn.

To learn more about these two vital elements of practice in the Early Years, this course will help to examine both in more depth.
