Updated to reflect the 2012 EYFS, this newly revised title in the What does it mean to be? series is designed to give you the tools to ensure that your work with children, whether in a school, nursery or home setting, is appropriate to children's individual stages of development.
Ideas for one-year olds include how to:-
- Offer sensory materials to develop physical skills
- Best encourage communication skills, and the importance of chatting to even very young babies
- Support the emotional well-being of babies
- Be alert to what babies understand
This series supports early years practitioners, but each book recognises the importance of partnership with families.
