Points for Reflection

Promoting the benefits of EYPP

  • How do I promote EYPP funding so that families are aware of its importance?
  • How can I illustrate how children could benefit from the EYPP additional funding?
  • How can I provide the same information requests for all families so that take up is maximised?
  • Are there any opportunities to ‘pool’ funding to support children’s needs?

Building positive relationships with families and carers

  • How can I find out more information about each family?
  • How can I better meet the needs of the child, so they are able to access and belong in the setting?
  • How can I help the family or child to overcome any barriers they may be encountering?
  • How can I include families in planning and deciding how EYPP is spent?
  • How can I enhance families understanding of how to support their child’s learning and development at home?
  • How can I use transition times at the beginning and end of sessions to involve families in conversations about their child’s learning and development?

Listening to the voice of the child

  • How do I include children in decision making?
  • How could children communicate their thoughts and preferences? For example, through photographs, drawings, choice boards.
  • What interests and fascinations does the child have that I could use as a stimulus to enhance their learning and development?
  • What do I know about how the child likes to learn? How do they demonstrate the characteristics of effective learning?
  • What strategies and resources could I consider that would ignite the child’s curiosity for learning further?

Choosing how to spend EYPP and measuring impact

  • How can I use research to identify evidence based approaches to inform how spending is planned?
  • Who do I involve in monitoring and discussing children’s progress?
  • What will I demonstrate any impact on the child’s learning and development?
