Guidance on best practice and EYFS statutory requirements
Focus on each strand of the 'A Unique Child' theme for Health and Wellbeing
Practitioners' checklists and points for reflection
Real case studies
Taking the 'A Unique Child' theme at the heart of learning, this is an essential title for all practitioners and childminders who want further guidance and
in-depth understanding on the principles and commitments that accompany babies' and children's developmental journey throughout the EYFS.
Every child is a unique child and '... a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured'. It is therefore crucial
that practitioners encourage and support each child to thrive in every area of development at their own pace and in their own individual ways.
This book will provide a purposeful guide to best practice, inviting practitioners to reflect on three main strands: growing and developing; physical
wellbeing; emotional wellbeing.
Real case studies are included, with typical examples describing how requirements are and should be met.
