A child’s physical confidence has a great deal to do with their emotional health, but what do we
understand by ‘emotional literacy’? And how does this impact on practice and provision for
babies and young children?
This book looks at the physical and emotional environment where children learn and develop,
and shows ways in which practitioners can successfully create and achieve an emotionally
literate and fully inclusive provision. It provides strategies to help children balance body and mind
through positive mental health and physical wellbeing and includes sections on:
- What is ‘Emotional Literacy’?
- Wellbeing and children’s self-confidence
- The role of the adult
- How Emotional Literacy supports an inclusive environment
It also examines the role of parents and carers, who are integral to this process.
