A group of 20 Early Years Practitioners have recently completed the full ‘Implementing the High Scope Approach’ training course which was delivered by Better Finglas as part of the Early Years Programme. This year long course provided participants with the opportunity to explore the areas of the High Scope Curriculum and to introduce the curriculum into their settings. The training included topics such as; Daily Routine, Supportive Adult-Child Interaction Strategies, Child Observation Records, Active Learning and Building Relationships with Families.
