Communication with Parents

These books contain 45 art projects with learning notes designed to teach parents about what to expect from their child’s learning between age 2 and 5. They are designed to offer parents an accessible introduction to the EYFS Learning and Development areas.

Ask many parents and they would LOVE to know more about their 2-5 year old child’s development. Many parents worry (usually unnecessarily) that their child is ‘behind’ in certain areas.  Others are simply curious about what they can expect and when from their child. If you know any parents like that, then this is the book set for them.

The book set contains 45 art projects with learning notes for parents to do at home with their children. Each art project focuses on a different area of learning and development. The learning notes that accompany each art project are designed to be a fun and accessible introduction for parents about what to expect from their 2-5 year old child’s development.  

As childminders we are fortunate to have child development information available to us in the form of the EYFS Learning and Development milestones. It is our job to continually observe and monitor developments in the pre-school children we look after. My book takes this lengthy information and makes it accessible to parents at a level I hope they will both enjoy and find useful.

The two books are sold as a set covering the seven main learning and development areas for parents. Book 1 covers personal social and emotional development, physical development and mathematics. Book 2 covers language development, literacy, creativity and understanding the world. These books give parents the insights they crave about their child, and will help them to better understand the difficult work that childminders and other child care professionals do.

The Statutory Framework for the EYFS states that ‘Providers must make parents aware of where they can access more information about the EYFS.’ One place is to point them to the DfE website… but loaning them my books is a much friendlier way to fulfil this requirement.

 


I am really enjoying using your Start Learning books. I have been on lots of training courses but I like the straightforward way you write and explain things. Many thanks, Christine.

These books helped me to keep children amused for hours with a series of fun activities, but more importantly, it's given me the confidence to see that the young child in my care is developing just as she should be in the way she works with art projects and plays with her friends. I've learn't so much about why she does what she does but in such a friendly and fun way. I realy recommend this book. Thanks, Orin
