Sorry, I missed this post and it looks like others did, too! :D

A member of my staff has just attended an LA course on the BTTM framework, and the tutor said we should all be planning separately for the under 3s. I've also had feedback from Ofsted inspections that some inspectors feel strongly that under 3s shouldn't have to have separate planning, as long as differentiated activiites take place, and all staff are well-versed. Really confusing, isn't it? We, like you, have 2-4:11 year olds, and I really don't want to have to do different planning for the under 3s.

I may be wrong here (after all, I'm not perfect - :o ), but I also strongly feel it's down to differentiation. The pre-school section in which I work often has children as young as 2.6 or less, differentiation is our key. Why plan differently when all that's necessary is awareness and knowing your children - provided you do!!

 

If you really want, you can show where/how you're linking to BTTM, to keep people quiet?
