This is a highly visual and accessible resource for anyone working with 2 year olds. It brings the work around the potential of the learning environment by Elizabeth Jarman to life with case study examples featuring a storyboard narrative and images illustrating the rationale and thinking behind creating developmentally appropriate places to talk for 2 year olds. The aim is to highlight the communication capabilities and preferences of 2 year olds and help readers consider how this knowledge can be used to offer areas that trigger speaking and listening skills, emotional well-being and physical development. The recent review of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) has highlighted particular areas of skill development and prioritised their importance - communication skills is one such area. With a high number of our youngest children still struggling with poor communication skills, this publication is beatifully timed in responding to the new EYFS and its recommendations.
Elizabeth Jarman's background is in teaching. Until 2006 she was assistant Director at the Basic Skills Agency, working closely with the Skills for Life Strategy Unit, Sure Start Unit leading the 'Step into Learning' training and development programme. More recently Elizabeth developed the Communication Friendly Spaces Toolkit for practitioners and she now specializes in improving learning environments. She offers a range of training and development programmes which are currently being delivered across England and Wales.
