The Sustained Shared Thinking and Emotional Well-being (SSTEW)Scale is designed to consider some of the intentional and relational pedagogical strategies strongly associated with child outcomes. It considers practice that supports children aged between 2 and 5 years of age in developing skills in sustained shared thinking and emotional well-being as well as developing strong relationships, effective communication and aspects of self-regulation. It is designed to be used for research, self-evaluation and improvement, audit and regulation.
Using the SSTEW Scale alongside other environment scales (including ECERS-E, ECERS-for ITERS-R)gives users a more complete picture of what high-quality early childhood education and care can look like. It is aspirational in that it considers high quality pedagogy and practice. It can b e used by researchers, heads of centres, managers, teaching staff and practitioners, as well as advisory staff and in professional development.
