Planning for emerging interests and documenting children’s learning and development can become an onerous and frustrating task for educators. Especially if the needs of the individual child gets lost in layers of documentation. Planning, observation and recording can become disjointed with one component bearing little relationship to the other.
This programme is about creating a streamlined system.
The aim is to outline a streamlined and effective system that will enable educators to plan for children’s emerging interests and needs and make their 'voice' visible.
This programme is an extension of the Meantóir programme ‘Planning for Emergent Curriculum’ and ‘Creating Learning Stories’ and puts a particuular emphasis on including the voice of the child.
**This programme includes blank planning templates and educator planning guides for both the 0-3 age group and the pre-school age group in the downloadable resource section. Completed sample plans for both ages groups are also included.
