My book: Observation, Assessment and Planning

OAP-Cover-3d-MediumI’m really excited to tell you that my book – Observation, Assessment and Planning in the Early Years: Bringing it all Together – is available, published by the Open University/McGraw Hill.

In conjunction with this I now have an online training course, entitled Observation, Assessment and Planning. Find out more information here.

The book highlights how practitioners of all levels can successfully and effectively use the observation, assessment and planning cycle to support their children. I’ve included underpinning theory, with the major focus on how observations and assessments lead to next steps.

Whenever I do training on this subject, I have found time and time again that practitioners are really good at doing observations and linking these with child development and the EYFS.

However – using these to formulate effective, relevant and meaningful next steps can be really difficult. My book explains how to take observations and assessments and choose next steps in a variety of ways.

There’s more information including reviews and a background to the book on the book’s website or you can buy a copy here
