  • international views of gifted and talented young children
  • links to the early years curriculum
  • new activities and ideas
  • extended coverage for young children aged 3 to 6

There are lots of ideas for things to try out in your setting, and photocopiable practical activities for parents to try out at home.The ideas and activities have all been tried and tested by practitioners and show how to help gifted children to flourish and all children to benefit from imaginative approaches to learning.
