About the Author

Sally Featherstone has a wealth of experience as a teacher, head teacher and a local authority adviser and inspector. In recent years, alongside her activities in publishing, Sally has continued to build a national reputation as a trainer and consultant in the Primary and Early Years field.


Learning to Learn offers a very readable perspective on children's development and life chances through the eyes of Sally Featherstone, an educator with heart! Providing insights into the many influences on children's lives, she considers the seven ages of the child from before birth up to age seven - analysing some of the key features that will support them to grow and to learn. * Ann Langston, Director of Early Years Matters Ltd *
This book celebrates how the 'process' is more important than the end product, in terms of how children using our own common sense, a few practical hints, tips and strategies shared in this book, we can enjoy the lifelong journey of learning alongside the children in our care... -- Martine Horvath * Early Years Educator magazine *
As clear and focused as all her other cleverly brings together biological, physiological and psychological information about the initial stages of the learning journey. It would be a valuable read for any practitioner. -- Mary Briggs * Programme Lead for Early Years and Primary ITE *
Really useful resource with plenty of real life examples/case studies to make links between theory and practice. -- Joy Chalke * Principal Lecturer *
