Planning is central to the role of any early years practitioner and involves careful consideration of resources and the learning environment, learning outcomes, observation and assessment and the unique abilities of individual children. This is a big ask and in a busy setting it can be a challenge to adopt a flexible, creative approach to planning that embraces the unexpected rather than relying on templates or existing schemes of work. This book takes a fresh look at planning to consider the possibilities that should be encouraged when playing alongside young children. It shows how a creative approach that allows for spontaneous adventures in play through child-led projects leads to rich learning experiences that build on children’s own interests. Drawing on practice from Reggio Emilia, New Zealand , Scandinavia and settings in the UK, the book covers all aspects of planning including: using observations of children to enable them to lead projects; organisation of indoor and outdoor learning environments; inclusive practice; learning through risk taking and adventure play; working with parents and carers; encouraging the team to consider different ways of working. Including encounters from authentic settings and provocative questions for reflective practice, this timely new text aims to give students and practitioners the confidence to adopt a flexible approach to planning that will better meet the needs of the children in their care. The authors are experienced lecturers, practitioners, mentors and assessors. Working with students, visiting placements, training teachers and early years professionals, they provide a sense of real purpose in their writing and enjoyment in the themes made explicit throughout this book.

Curriculum needs to be based on the strengths and needs of children. This information is gathered through careful observation and documentation and is one of the cornerstones of curriculum development. The purpose of this text is to take curriculum development to another level: to fill the gap between theory and practice. This text will help students to look at curriculum from the perspective of the child and to understand how that perspective is linked to learning and theory. This book is a documentation of individuals and groups of children learning over time. Each curriculum discussion starts with the real experiences that children have had. From these experiences, pertinent theory is woven in, explained and expanded.

Recognizing the importance of teaching based on young children's interests, this book describes the High Scope Demonstration Preschool approach to helping teachers plan early childhood education learning activities, based on specific observations of children, rather than a predetermined set of topics. Each chapter includes the following sections: (1) general teaching and interaction strategies, emphasizing techniques useful for communicating with children verbally and nonverbally; (2) indoor and outdoor materials to add, including possible materials to enable children to expand on specific interests; (3) planning and recall experiences, game-like strategies to hold the group's attention, built on action or material from play experiences; (4) small-group experiences, designed for use with one adult and 5 to 10 children; (5) large-group experiences, including movement, songs, and games; (6) child observations, samples of teachers' anecdotal notes recorded about learning experiences described in the chapter and classified according to either High/Scope key experiences or the Child Observation Record; and (7) adult training activities, individual or group activities to give teachers practice in applying the strategies presented. Chapter 1 of the guide outlines the High/Scope Framework, including the central principles and guidelines. Chapters 2 through 9 cover the following types of activities: (1) "Artwork: Drawing, Painting, and Making Models"; (2) "Pretend Play: Favorite Play Roles"; (3) Nature: Observing Plants, Animals, and Weather"; (4) "Social Play: Exploring Feelings and Relationships"; (5) "Celebrations: Experiencing Holidays and Special Events"; (6) "'Messy' Materials: Pouring, Filling, Mixing, and Molding"; (7) "Food-Related Play: Cooking, Eating, and Pretending"; and (8) "Character Play: Pooh, Piglet, and Power Rangers."
