Focuses on teaching and learning and its practical implications for early years practice

Di Chilvers

Creating and Thinking Critically in the Early Years is designed to empower early childhood educators with a deep understanding of the characteristics of effective learning. More than just theory, this book connects these insights to practical strategies for planning and developing a child-centred curriculum recognising young learners as active participants in their educational journey. There are three easy-to-use resources, each one exploring one essential area of learning.

  • Learning Actively: Children learn best through active engagement and hands-on learning.
  • Playing and Exploring: Play in environments that foster exploration and discovery is vital to learning.
  • Creating and Thinking Critically: Developing creativity and critical thinking skills promotes creative problem-solving skills.
