Each page gives step-by-step instructions, tips and plenty of further ideas for children ready for more. They offer practical ideas on differentiation for young babies with special needs as well as tips on what to look and listen for. The experiences suggested in this book will help young children to grow and develop through a range of both planned and informal activities, many of which the reader will already be familiar with. The activities use objects and resources easily available in most homes and settings, they focus on practical activities and purposeful play for individuals, pairs and small groups. They allow babies and children to develop at their own pace, to make unhurried discoveries and allow for much repetition.
