Skills, knowledge & improving practice
SKIP for Early Years Educators has been a long time in the planning stage. My name is Debra Laxton and I am passionate about early years, having worked in various guises within the sector for over 30 years. I currently work as Senior Lecturer/ Early Childhood Lead at the University of Chichester and I am about to embark on my own PhD learning journey.
My mission is to empower early years educators to develop Skills and Knowledge and Improve Practice (SKIP). This website intends to provide useful resources and tips to engage you as early years educators. I want you to be interested in the information provided so that you are motivated to; share and discuss topics with colleagues, be reflective educators who consider and evaluate current provision, personal and setting practices, develop your own professionalism and become a change agent within your setting and beyond.
The current coronavirus pandemic has motivated me to create this website NOW so that a newly created guide can be freely accessed and shared with parents by you. The guide has been especially written to promote learning and development at home during these unprecedented times.
