'There’s a growing awareness that for the good of their health, children need to be out and about more, with their friends, exploring the outdoor world in their own way.' - Nicola Butler, Director of the Free Play Network It is widely acknowledged that children today do not get outdoors often enough and there are serious concerns about children's activity levels and rising associated behavioural, mental and health problems. With such structured and technology-driven lives, it is easy for young children to stay indoors, play on computers and not socialise with other children in a healthy and active way. This book not only supports 'playing out' as an integral part of children’s natural growth and development, but also provides early years workers with a full programme of outdoor physical activities to promote physical, social and behavioural skills. This book is a guidebook to setting up an outdoor physical activity programme in any early years setting. The book focuses on how getting outdoors and taking part in physical activities will provide children with positive fun experiences to enhance their general learning and development. The programme can be adapted to suit any timescale - from a whole term to one or two days. Key features include showing practitioners: how to make the most of their outdoor area for all children step by step explanations to the outdoor activities how to engage participants (including parents) how to set up and plan activities ideas for group and individual assessment how to carry out risk assessments how an outdoors programme can change children's lives for the better.

Fully updated to reflect the changes to the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) qualification, this second edition remains the essential handbook to support all those considering or working towards EYPS and on whichever pathway they embark. Organised into three parts, the text starts by leading you through the initial requirements for entry to the programme, providing an overview of the different pathways. It goes on to focus on the standards against which all EYP candidates are tested, and then finally looks at the new validation process and beyond. Although closely linked to the standards required for EYPS, and their relationship with the Early Years Foundation Stage, the book is not a standard-by-standard manual; it supports you in developing an organic, holistic perspective on childcare and education, combining practical skills with knowledge development. The text includes case studies based on real practice scenarios, ideas for practical activities, further reading, reflection, interviews and advice from EYPS candidates who have successfully negotiated the validation process.

We encounter mathematics on a regular basis in one form or another. For some people, maths is 'scary' and not something they feel confident about. Even though many educators and parents attempt to provide good mathematics experiences, there is still a high level of anxiety about the teaching and learning of mathematics. This book presents a broad range of concepts and aims to widen the narrow view that maths for young children is just about numbers and shapes. The content includes pattern (early algebra), counting, number, early operations, measurement, shape and spatial awareness (geometry), matching, sorting, data analysis and the introduction of chance (statistics and probability). This book is intended for educators and parents who would like to explore and investigate maths concepts to enrich children's experiences and extend their current thinking and learning.

Frank Field was commission by the Prime Minister in June 2010 to provide an independent review on poverty and life chances. This is the final report and the aim of the review was to; generate a broader debate about the nature and extent of poverty in the UK, examine the case for reforms to poverty measures, in particular for the inclusion of non-financial elements, explore how a child's home environment affect their chances of being ready to take full advantage of their schooling, recommend potential action by government and other institution to reduce poverty and enhance life chances for the least advantage consistent with the Government's fiscal strategy. The report demands a broadening of the attack on child poverty and supplies overwhelming evidence that children's life chances are most heavily predicated on their development in the first five years of like. Its family background, parental education, good parenting and the opportunities for learning and development in those crucial years that together matter more to children than money. The Review has concluded that the UK needs to address the issue of child poverty in a fundamentally different way if it is to make a real change to children's life chances as an adult.
