It takes a broad look at policy developments and shows how these have affected children, settings, parents and the early years workforce.Divided into two parts, the first examines the theoretical perspectives and sets out the early years policy context looking at issues around accountability, international influences on policy and the Early Years Foundation Stage. The second directly shows how policy has influenced practice and considers:the upskilling of the workforce and the impact of this on practitioners-the development of the learning environment including outdoor provision-sustained shared thinking and its link to high quality learning and teaching-the impact of policy of parents.
