At Siren Films we love learning about children and finding out what makes them tick

Watching children in action and observing them carefully leads to a deep understanding of what’s really going on. Combine that with the insightful information we provide about current theories and early childhood practices and subjects really start to sink in, leading to outstanding results and confident practitioners.

We are the UKs leading creators of training videos, DVDs about child development and learning. Whether watching alone, in small groups or large, our video based training material inspires reflection and discussion on current practice and makes a real difference to how adults interact with the children in their care.

Robert Roebuck,

Video is an excellent tool for learning, especially for fine tuning skills of observation - the ability to re-watch a clip makes video an invaluable resource. 
Seeing child development theories in practice will help you make sense of what you're observing.  
By closely watching children's behaviour (making observations), reflecting and making sense of what you've seen (assessment) and then deciding how to put that information to good use (planning), you quickly and easily develop confidence in your skills and knowledge.
