Introduction The Specialist Early Years Teacher Some Key Characteristics Leading the Foundation Stage Team Co-ordinating Early Years Practice Helping Children Feel 'At Home' Helping Children to 'Branch Out' Keeping Records Planning and Assessment Learning with Children Managing Complexity Looking Outwards, Looking Inwards Supporting Other Practitioners Developing the Foundation Stage

`The Foundation Stage Teacher in Action is one of the definitive texts on the foundation stage, in which Margaret Edgington deals with the realities of practice based on theory and early years principles. It is immensely practical and easy to read, and while it deserves to be read from cover to cover, this New Edition is particularly accessible for those who want to dip in or who need to refer to a specific chapter' - Early Education

`If you are new to the Foundation Stage, have been working in the Early Years for a few years, or for longer than you care to remember, if you have responsibility for employing staff for the Foundation Stage within your setting or if you work in a different key stage but have co-ordinator responsibility for the Foundation Stage, you should buy this book!' - National Campaign for Nursery Education Newsletter
