Making strong links POWERPOINT -Early Learning and Childcare and the Scottish Attainment Challenge Some key messages High-quality, universal early learning and childcare (ELC) is a key factor in mitigating low attainment
throughout schooling, particularly for children growing up with socio-economic disadvantage. High-quality ELC is generally beneficial to childrens holistic development and particular gains in cognitive development and early language can be long lasting. As the first step in life-long learning, ELC provides unique opportunities to work positively with parents and carers about their role in supporting their childs Want to read more? attainment.

Back to basics approach Taking action 1 : high-quality universal provision Building the Ambition (2014) promotes that effective early learning pedagogy to benefit all children requires a blend of: Enabling, well-considered learning environments that support the children within and just beyond their developmental stage; Enriching, stimulating and engaging experiences; and, Highly skilled and well attuned adults who understand their role in developing childrens learning
capability. Experiences Environmen ts Adults Taking action 2 : identifying the gap potential A skilled five-year-old grows from a busy four-year-old, a curious three-year-old, a cuddled two-year-old, an adventurous one-year-old and a communicative baby. J. Lindon (2002)
Do you understand the factors that affect limited progress, for example, vocabulary acquisition? What gaps might be relevant for very young children? What information do you gather from parents/carers that provides data, for example, about early language development and vocabulary?
How involved are multi-agency partners in helping you understand who may be at risk? Need help? Go to further reading. Taking action 2 : identifying the gap potential One ELC setting attached to a childrens centre had an agreed policy about the circumstances in which a child and their family would be regarded as at a disadvantage. This included children who were: showing poor speech and language for their age and stage of development. being looked after by someone other than their parents/carers, such as grandparents. those whose family was known to be involved in crime.
those who had young or teenage parents. those who had older siblings with a wide age gap between them.

Have a strong evidence base with proven success. Be developmentally appropriate for childrens age and stage. Support play-based learning and early learning pedagogy.

COFFEE & CHAT PLANNING WITH CHILDREN CURRICULUM FOR EXCELLENCE It is important that we recognise that planning and assessment is a process not an end result, that it is neither limited nor driven by paperwork, but is part of an ethos of ensuring quality experiences and environments for children in order that they develop into successful learners, confident individuals,
effective contributors and responsible citizens. NATIONAL GUIDANCE Its all connected Childrens interests and needs Child brings: Spontaneous Child has control and leads learning Child involved in planning whats next along with
adult Provides context for observation and assessment Provides context for developing skills OBSERVATION IS KEY Responsive/ consultative/ short-term planning Their own history and knowledge
Their own emotional wellbeing Their own impulses and needs Co-construction of environment High quality interactions and learning conversations Promotion of learning in
contexts meaningful for child Their own ideas and plans Adult/child negotiations re expectations and what is important Their own barriers
Sustained shared thinking Childs view of continuous provision Effective promotion of skills Childs View Rich learning High quality
Relevant contexts Adult brings: Knowledge of the curriculum and skills to promote Opportunities for the intentional promotion of learning Possible lines of learning planned by adult
Possible assessments planned by adult through play and learning opportunities Adult view of record-keeping Flexible enough for children to lead learning within this Adults own
strengths and areas to develop OBSERVATION IS KEY Adults view of continuous provision Adults ew long term/medium
term planning ITS ALL CONNECTED Responsi ve/ consultati ve planning Continuo us provision Planned
experien ces ITS ALL CONNECTED Curriculum Rationale: We are clear about the purpose of our curriculum framework. It is based on shared values and takes full account of local needs and circumstances. Our very good understanding of pedagogy and play in learning is evident in our delivery of the curriculum for babies, toddlers and the young child. [HGIOELC p.25] Planned experiences [long and medium term planning]: Building the Ambition describes planned learning as what the practitioner wants children to learn within a caring, nurturing environment - the intentional promotion of experiences and interactions which are important for young children to learn. [BTA p. 51] Continuous provision [ie. layout, resources, learning experiences] is a very significant part of childrens Early Years experience. This guidance encourages your team to look at your provision from the childs point of view. Are you providing high quality to support childrens learning? Responsive/consultative planning [short-term planning]: Children learn as they play, and we need to observe, listen, respond and consult with our children. Responding to childrens interests and needs is at the heart of
planning, particularly for our youngest children. Planning learning involves both the adult and the child.
