You can practice recording observations of children’s development in this free learning resource from the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and earn Open Badges along the way. Comments, questions and links to more information are included to support your thinking and practice.
Observation is about watching children’s actions, expressions, gestures and behaviours, and listening to their talk and interactions. Observation is the practice of looking at and listening to children to find out:
- how they are developing
- what they like doing
- what they are learning through their play and the experiences on offer.
