That was the week that was ...

.....over but not forgotten.

September 1st 2008 and the new Early Years Foundation Stage came into force for ALL nursery schools, playgroups and registered child minders, despite the concerns of many and best efforts of the Openeye campaign and it’s many supporters some seen commenting below.

An article in the Telegraph On Line answered a question for me, What about the Montessori and Steiner Waldorf Schools?

“Montessori and Steiner Waldorf schools, which have an ethos of development through play, say they have been assured by ministers that they will not be forced to compromise their teaching methods.”
So if they need not compromise why then do the rest of the country have to do so?
