Young children live in the here and now. If adults are to make a real difference to their learning they need to seize the moments when children first show curiosity and support their next steps immediately. This book embraces the concept of planning in the moment and emphasises the critical role of the adult in promoting child-led learning, giving early years practitioners the confidence and insight to work and plan in the moment, and enabling the children in their care to live, learn, play and develop in the here and now. Planning in the Moment with Young Children maintains a strong link to practice, providing numerous examples of how practitioners can integrate spontaneous planning and rich adult-child interactions into their everyday practice and early years curricula. From timetabling to setting clear rules; creating enabling environments, keeping records and making use of a variety of materials, the book demonstrates the multitude of ways in which practitioners can encourage child autonomy and respond to the unique needs of each child. Examples from practice are rooted in theory, are fully contextualised, and are exemplified by original documentation sourced from the author�s own experiences and from a wide variety of settings. � Key features include: over 180 full colour photographs to illustrate practice photocopiable pages including planning sheets, documentation and activity sheets advice on working with parents, with individual children and groups tailored guidance on working with children at different stages of development from birth to age 6 years with relevance to a range of settings, including childminders, pre-schools, nurseries and schools. When children are allowed to select where, with what, and how to play, they are truly invested in their play, they become deeply involved and make dramatic progress. This book is an outstanding testament to a responsive and child-led way of working in early years environments. Practitioners will be guided, inspired and supported to work spontaneously and reactively � planning as they go and celebrating the results!

How can we support children to reach their full potential and not be constrained by gender expectations? Are gender roles fixed at birth or do they develop through experiences? Gender Diversity and Inclusion in Early Years Education introduces practitioners to key aspects of gender in the early years and explores how to ensure that children and staff teams are supported in settings that have outstanding practice. Considering the implications of gender in the context of supporting children, families and practitioners, this book examines the theoretical contexts that surround gender identity and explores current legislation and practice in order to provide practitioners with all the information they need to develop their own work and settings in an open and equal way. Offering a wealth of practical guidance, case studies and reflective questions which link to the EYFS, chapters cover: a theoretical approach to gender development; current legislation and the impact on early years practice; understanding gender fluidity and the way in which children express gender; creating gender equality when working with children and the role of manager in creating a supportive ethos. Including tasks, reflective points and links to useful websites and organisations, this book will be valuable reading for all early years practitioners and students that want to promote an inclusive environment for the children in their care, their families and colleagues.
