Highly Able Children in the Early Years

Every nursery in Scotland will have children who are capable of high achievement in one or more areas. Identifying these children and fully meeting their needs can prove complex and challenging for parents and early years staff. This report highlights some of the issues facing early years educators in providing for this cohort of children. It explores questions relating to identification, acceleration and enrichment and provides examples from good practice from eight nurseries across Scotland.
