About this item
Boys do less well than girls in all areas of learning in the EYFS Profile and continue to lag behind girls in assessments throughout their school careers. This book draws on current research into how young children learn to provide practical advice on the ways Early Years practitioners can create positive learning environments for boys. It explores how best to match provision to boys’ learning styles to support their progress in communication and literacy, while aiding their physical, personal, social and emotional development. Giving clear guidance on helping boys to meet high expectations in a playful and creative way, it is an essential read for anyone working to create a positive foundation for boys in Early Years education.
