The Looking Glass Centre is an inspirational meeting place and training facility to support and develop pedagogy and reflective practice in Early Years Foundation Stage settings.
The Looking Glass Centre is a venue for some of our training sessions. It has a separate training room offering space for a number of workshops with the added benefit of the Looking Glass exhibition to immerse you in your training experience.
The Looking Glass Centre supports early years educators through regular exhibitions to promote and challenge current thinking. Please note all visits to exhibitions must be pre-booked by emailing us.
Time to Close the Word Gap
The term ‘word gap’ is typically used to refer to children in early years settings’ or entering primary school with a vocabulary far below aged related expectations. This word gap can be present throughout a child’s education and beyond.
‘If a child is in the lowest 20% in vocabulary and knowledge at aged five and you want them to move to an average level within three years, they would have to learn twenty new words every day’ - Why Closing the Word Gap Matters - Oxford Language Report
