  1. Gender Stereotyping

    I am currently in my second year of my FDa and I am embarking in a small scale inquiry - here are my thoughts; I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST A DISCUSSION, OPINIONS, THOUGHTS ON GENDER STEREOTYPING, specifically the following; I am looking at my small scale inquiry and I am considering investigating the influence of an all female practitioner setting on how we set up the environment and whether subliminally we set up based on gender? For example; is the construction area set up with more focus based on boys and the creative area set up for girls? - this is not my opinion just my suggestions. Also we receive supporting documents for "Engaging Boys in the Early Years" and "A Place to Talk for Boys" but where are the documents for supporting girls? Do we naturally treat girls and boys differently when engaging them in play? Please feel free to comment and discuss. Many thanks in advance Kelly
  2. What makes a Quality Setting?

    No thats fine - answer away please. Xxxx
  3. I am currently in my Year 2 of the Foundation Degree and I am collating information on what makes a Quality setting and would love your input and opinions on this. Those of you who have children in a preschool, nursery or with a childminder- would you mind answering a question for me? "What in your mind makes a Quality setting?" "What did you or do you look for when choosing a setting?"

The assignment is;- With reference to your assessment of the child and relevant theory identify and discuss learning opportunities which have the potential for future development. Provide a reflective view on the potential impact of your practice within this task for supporting positive dispositions to learn. Any help would be greatly received. I am struggling more with the writing and how to layout etc. Thanks K Xxx
