Nursery Children Should Be Structured for Basic Numeracy and Literacy

- Ofsted’s first annual report for early years education criticises nurseries and childminders for failing to prepare children for school, stating that they should routinely measure the children’s grasp of the basics. Too many young children are entering school not ready for the load of full-time education. Ofsted recommends that children as early as two should be prepared for basic literacy and numeracy as part of a fundamental revamp of early years education.

- Sir Michael Wilshaw, the chief inspector, states that the early years system in England has to be “more accountable” and give an accurate documentation to parents about their child’s development. He continues: “Research shows that children’s development is at its greatest between birth and five. Therefore, the activities they do are absolutely crucial in giving them a good start in life.”
