    This is a wonderful piece of film and I wish everyone working in the EYFS could see it. Out of interest, how would you respond if a child had very fixed interests, perhaps a child with ASD? How would you intervene to move on their learning?

    Absolutely love this brilliant video! Had the treat of visiting carterhatch and learning from the amazing Anna and Ruth who have led this approach! So inspiring and leading a change across the UK and beyond..putting children at the heart of their own learning! Working in this way is liberating. My team and I are throughly inspired and feel happy and relaxed in our roles as we know we are doing the best for the children. Our children are thriving… They are happy, confident, independent, sociable and settled children who love to learn. Thank you carterhatch! I’m very very interested in the Slow Education movement so very glad I found this wonderful page!

    This is absolutely fabulous and I visited sloe education in Blackburn and it very much confirmed to me that in my school this is what we do in Nursery and it was reassuring to see how it is explained to others and how to show others the successes that this method of pedagogy brings to children. Especially in our school where we have additional challenge of over 23 languages spoken. I will be using this video clip to demonstrate how successful following children’s interests can become. The outcomes can be outstanding as seen in your clip.
