Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

Myself and two of the nursery staff are attending some training around BTTM during October. It is being funded by Birmingham EYDCP. Hopefully I'll come back with a better understanding of the format and some suggestions of implementation. :o I'll keep the forum posted. Anyone received any training around Birth to Three Matters? I'd be interested to hear. :D

Hi Sue

I look forward to hearing some feed back about the training

 

I m curious to see if there will be any additional paper work or development records to keep up to date

 

we are in the midle of changing our existing record keeping but we are waiting to see if there are any suggestions from the BTTM training

 

Unfortunately we have got to wait as the information about the training only arrived last week with a note saying that the BTTM training was full.

Hi Everyone

Reading through Nursery World 2/10/2003 and saw some training around BTTM listed.

I attended a BTTM conference on Friday in Birmingham, which I found useful. The main emphasis was about using the framework as a support package, which highlights effective practice. I will give more feedback when I make sense of my notes :o

Hello sue,

 

I was looking for guidance on working with the BTTM and came across your post. St Thomas had training on Saturday on the pack although i think the focus was for childminders, let me know if you find anything

Hi Finding Nemo!

Just a quick note to say welcome to the forum, and thanks for your first post! :D

 

I think Sue's a bit snowed under with work and study at the moment, but I'm sure she'll find your post soon!

 

Hope you find the site of interest!

 

Regards, Steve.

HI Finding Nemo

 

Steve was right - life is extremely hectic at present :o

 

I recently attended a conference on BTTM. Many questions were asked about planning. The response was that practitioners don't need to plan in the same way as the foundation stage, but to continue to offered varied play experiences. The suggestion was made that the cards be used as guides as to what the children could be achieving and ideas to carry these out. Two of the staff ae due to attend workshops around the 4 components, so I'll keep you posted.

Hope this makes some sense xD

Hi Everyone

 

Just a note to say I've recently purchased a brilliant set of 4 books about activities to support BTTM. :o

 

They are called Little Baby Book Series:

Touch it ... feel it

I like you ... you like me

Grab ... and let go

What I ... really want

 

Written by Clare Beswick and Sally Featherstone.

Highly recommended to link with BTTM - my staff think they're great!

A lot of the ideas are simple, but they are linked to the different components which makes it easier to assess.

I've got these too and they are great. Got set one and two, other sets are coming out next year. I also get the "little books" from them every month too which are fab and so user-friendly. I'll be attending my first workshop based on BTTM in January so looking forward to getting loads more ideas.

I recently attended a one day workshop which my EYDCP ran, it was on a saturday and really poorly attended.... four childminders and three nursery staff.... which was a real shame......

 

Anyway it was really great and really understandable, like Sue send you are not detail planning for this age group just ensuring that you offer them a range of experiences and opportunities that are true to life as possible, they should socialise with other children, have a key worker - the same one attends to all their personal needs in an ideal setting, and use the outdoor enviroment as mush as possible.... a good practioner does not plan wheir play, but offers a variety of opportunities and helps the child to develop their interests further through activie participation and positive encouragement.
