Abstract

For all those working in Early Years, improving quality experiences for all young children is a priority. By examining issues surrounding quality improvement, the importance of reflective practice and the attributes required in the workplace to effect change and leadership, this book provides a contemporary view of practice.

Chapters focus on how settings can improve quality experiences for young children and how to implement strategies that lead to quality improvement.

Issues covered include: multi-disciplinary working; evaluating impact through reflective practice; creativity; digital technologies and play; safeguarding young children; leading practice and leading change; working with parents; improving the quality of student experience

This text allows students and practitioners to examine and reflect on practises that lead to creative Quality Improvement Strategies (QIS) in Early Years settings.
