The library will be trialling the Siren Films collection from Thursday 15th February. The collection was started by a animal behaviourist research who started her work in the North East of England. The creators of this platform specialise in capturing different aspects of child development over time. The films in this collection aim to support academics, professionals, therapists, nursery staff and anyone who aspires to help children lead happy lives and reach their full potential. This is an ideal resource for any member of staff or student who is studying or researching child development or to support professional practitioners.
The collection of over 500 films includes the following categories:
- Child development
- Effective learning
- Environment and materials
- Teaching and support
- Theories and approaches
To find out more, see the introductory videos about Siren Films here.
