What would young children make of the recent EYFS reforms and revision of Development Matters to the way in which they grow, learn and progress in their first 60 months of life? Di will talk about the ways in which young children learn and how we can support, participate and teach to maintain their developmental momentum.
Di has worked in the early years sector for nearly 40 years, she is an independent advisory consultant, trainer, researcher and writer. She works in partnership with settings, schools and LA’s across the countryto support the development of exemplary early years pedagogy and practice. Her collaborative approach is firmly rooted in principles of best practice with a strong connection to the philosophy and theory of youngchildren’s development, thinking and learning, best summed up by the pioneering early yearseducationalist Loris Malaguzzi as:
“Children are thrilled and grateful when adults want first to understand them and then to help them”
