In the 30+ years that I have been in early years education, I have not come across a more complete / holistic way to identify gaps in children's learning and to help staff to understand what the next steps for these children should be.

Whilst the approach is called 'Launchpad for Literacy' (and it does exactly that) it also encompasses the fundamental skills, knowledge and developmental milestones which children will need to be active learners in all areas of the curriculum.
