Every day, early years practitioners engage in interactions with young children that have the potential to enhance their learning. However, such is the temptation to squeeze every teaching moment out of each interaction that practitioners often interrupt children’s thinking and consequently interfere with their learning. This course will examine the knowledge, timing and sensitivity necessary to interact effectively. Through the extensive use of DVD footage delegates will have the opportunity to explore the role of the practitioner in both adult-led and child-led situations, providing opportunities to reflect on how to tune in to children’s current thinking and how to respond in ways that are of benefit to learning and development.
