Supporting Language and Literacy 0–5 offers practical guidance for those supporting young children’s language and literacy development. It describes the important features of early language development providing a clear and accessible theoretical framework illustrated by practical examples taken from a wide range of early years settings.

Linking directly to the Early Years Foundation Stage, the book focuses on the principles of inclusion, equality, individualised learning, planning, assessment and cross-curricular working that play a vital part in delivering the EYFS successfully. Additional features include:

  • a range of reflective and interactive activities supported by photocopiable materials
  • extension tasks for group training
  • practical examples to link the theory to practice
  • annotated further reading lists.

Supporting Language and Literacy 0–5 is an ideal handbook for trainers and trainees in local authorities, colleges and universities delivering courses such as BTEC, NVQ and NNEB. It is also a valuable resource for early years practitioners encouraging them to reflect on their own experiences and understand the direct impact they can have on children’s learning.
