Supporting Children's Social Development is a practical guide to how you can support children's friendships in the early years. It reflects the EYFS and Emotional Learning's (SEAL) focus on supporting children's social development.
This innovative title covers three core themes, which centre on understanding relationships between young children:
- Knowing how young children form close relationships with each other
- Exploring an appropriate role for adults in supporting young children to make close relationships with each other
- The role of leading good practice: helping staff and parents to understand the key issues around supporting children's social development.
Each section provides links to current practice, focus for reflection, real-life examples and bite-sized chunks of practical advice on how to promote positive relationships.
