Learning Stories are now the most favoured method of observation and assessment utilized by early childhood services to document young children’s progress in learning. The Learning Story Approach enables the Educator to collect, document, reflecting on, and use their observations to develop rich portraits of children as learners in order to plan for and build on further learning. The Learning Story format is suitable to use with babies, toddlers and young children and is constructed in a variety of ways.

This Meantóir CPD programme will enable Educators to:

– Appreciate the importance of formative assessment for children’s learning
– Recognise the type and quantity of information to document
– Utilise different Learning Story formats
– Practice strengths based writing techniques
– Compile Progress Portfolios that are unique to each child
– Transfer the ‘Moving Forward/What Next’ component of a Learning Story into emergent planning using Aistear learning goals.
