Early Years Collaborative


Ambition of the EYC

To make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up, by improving outcomes, and reducing inequalities, for all babies, children, mothers, fathers and families across Scotland to ensure that all children have the best start in life and are ready to succeed.


Objectives of the EYC

Convert the high level principles in the Early Years Framework (2008) and GIRFEC into practical action.

This must:

Deliver improvements in outcomes and reduce the inequalities for our most vulnerable children.

Shift the balance towards intervention and prevention.

Sustain the change to 2018 and beyond.

Why Bedtime Reading

Importance of bedtime routines.

Impact on attachment

Literacy


My Role

Head Teacher – 2 Nursery Schools

Programme Manager – Early Years Collaborative


Lending Library

Once a week

Record what book the child took.

Record the book returned.

Ask parents to record what they thought of the book.

Try to get parent helpers!


Observations and Parent Survey

Library book returned following day.

Library book often forgotten on the day.

60% stated they had read the book with their child (one whilst driving!)

40% at bedtime

20% more than once.


Reasons for not reading the book

A week’s too long

It’s his book

No time

It’s not my kind of book.

So what did we do about it?


PDSA - Plan, Do, Study, Act

“What will happen if we try something different?”

“What’s next? ”

“Did it work?”

“Let’s try it!”


How?

Think big, test small and scale up!

Plan, Do, Study, Act

What are we trying to accomplish?

What change can we make that will result in improvements?

How will we know that a change is an improvement?


By the end of June 90% of children at Grassmarket Nursery will receive a bedtime story at least 3 times a week.


June 2013 Tests of change

Baseline

1 - Change the name and provide a leaflet.

2 - Move the bookstand to the entrance.

3 - Choose more than one book.


90% of children at Grassmarket nursery school will receive a bedtime story at least 3 times a week.

Grassmarket changes introduced.


Last week

84%

of our children said they had a bedtime story.

THAT’S FANTASTIC!


87% of parents prefer to choose a book with their child


100% of parents prefer to choose a book any day of the week and as often as they like.


53% of parents said the new Bedtime Story system has led to them reading to their child more often.


He used to have DVD’s and be really late going to bed and now we use the bedtime story and he gets into bed and is sleeping longer… I’m hoping this will help with his behaviour.

40% of parents said the bedtime story has improved their child’s bedtime routine.


It’s a brilliant idea!

100% of parents said both they and their child enjoyed the bedtime stories.


If it’s a first child and you don’t have children at school you don’t realise how important bedtime reading is. I wish I’d realised this when his sister was younger.


I read the leaflet and it said how they settle down better with the comfort of your voice. I asked Theresa if she liked my voice and she said yes. I asked what about daddy and she said “he reads like a robot”


Biggest Impacts on Improvement

Changing the name!

Lending Library to Bedtime Stories.

Why bedtime reading is important.

Taking the hassle out of choosing a book!


Bedtime Stories Highlights

No longer record who, what, when.

Choose a book any day and more often.

All parents involved

More children are receiving a bedtime story.

More children have a better bedtime routine.


I like my bedtime story because it helps me to dream.
