Amazing Twos

Amazing twos at Bristol Early Years research and development

 

We have facilitated 'Amazing Twos' CPD for over 100 practitioners with a range of roles from a variety of settings.  Some people were already working with two year olds, whereas others were expanding their provision to accomodate eligible twos (funded places).

The course is delivered over 2 1/2 days with an element of action research which is shared on the final day.  The aims of Amazing Twos is to deepen practitioner knowledge and understanding around the needs of two year olds, who are at a distinct stage of development.  They are neither boisterous babies nor underachieving three year olds.  They are 2!

We wanted to provide an opportunity for practitioners to discuss and share aspect of best practice.  The content covers:

  • Early brain development
  • The role of the key person
  • Language and communication
  • Understanding behaviours
  • Observations
  • Planning.

The action research is a major aspect of the course and is an opportunity to effect positive change which benefits children.  Practitioners are able to share and celebrate this journey.

As facilitators, we have been humbled by the depth of reflection that the participants have evidenced. We would like to thank all those who have taken part and we hope to continue to offer CPD which will benefit two year olds.
