NAHT Early Years Conference 2018

The NAHT Early Years Conference was another change to think aloud about the curriculum in the early years and some of the false conflicts that seem to arise when we talk about it -
  • Curriculum Design vs Planning in the Moment
  • Involvement vs Learning
  • What you learn vs How you Learn it

The importance of maintained nursery schools

It was also another chance to talk about how precious Maintained Nursery Schools are, especially for their work towards improving the life chances of disadvantaged children.

Child poverty

I also argue here that we can’t put our sole emphasis on the curriculum as a way of helping disadvantaged children. We need to address the root causes, like child poverty.
