Last night i attended the third session of the childminder training course. It was my favourite one so far.we looked at how to undertake observations when children are playing and how to plan activities around children’s needs and interests. The Early Years Foundation Stage is all about making childen’s learning plans interesting and individual to them rather than teaching everybody the same way. We also looked at behaviour management strategies which i think will be helpful. I’m going to read more about the subject of play and develpment after the course because its such a huge subject and we were limited by time. However, it was a great session and very interesting. I feel really excited about starting now as have lots of good ideas for how to help children learn and progress cant wait to put them into action!
