Planning children's play and learning in the foundation stage

Updated in line with current policy and practice, this new edition fully reflects the content of `Curriculum guidance for the foundation stage' (QCA 2000) and recognises the importance of play as a context for young children's learning.

With explicit links to the early learning goals, it includes practical guidance and ideas on: how to create stimulating learning environments indoors and out planning exciting focus activities and experiences how to assess pupils' achievements making and supporting links with home. Incorporating 'Key Points for Good Practice' within each chapter, this is a key text for all practitioners working in the Foundation Stage.

It is also ideal for  students pursuing Qualified Teacher Status in the Early Years and for those enrolled in courses in Early Childhood Studies.
