Assessing Learning in the EYFS: Developing Observations of Children

One of the most important roles of the early years practitioner is to assess the progress of children to ensure that the learning opportunities are correctly matched to the individual child’s needs. Accurate observations of children are therefore crucial in ensuring that children progress through the curriculum. This course will consider the best types and combinations of observations for successful progress.

  • Explore what makes a good observation
  • Develop your understanding of the different ways in which to ‘observe’
  • Explore how to use these observations to plan effectively for children’s next steps
