Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment

Outstanding Early Years

Set out in a user-friendly style, Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment includes practical examples from real settings to illustrate what best practice looks like. It explores in detail what this area means in practice and how to ensure that 'quality of teaching' is achieved in daily provision. It shows how to extend children's learning, the use of language for teaching and learning and, the importance of a broad and balanced learning environment.
