Debbie Garvey has worked in early years for more than three decades championing children, families and practitioners across the entire early childhood sector. She has a particular interest in reflective practice, and the role it plays in developing quality experiences for children, families and staff.
Debbie has written several books and is currently working on three upcoming books, focusing on neuroscience, vulnerability and child development theorists.
In this interview, we discuss the importance of reflective practice (and why it should be more than just something you studied at college!) and the different types of reflective practice. Debbie has some great ideas and strategies for including reflective practice as part of your daily work, without distracting from the children, even if you’re a childminder or home-based.
She also explains how managers and leaders can support staff with reflective practice, whether you are just starting out or whether this is something that is already well established in your setting.
