Young children’s personal, social and emotional development is of central importance to all those working in the Early Years.
Offering thought-provoking questions and practical suggestions to help readers to reflect on and develop their own practice, this fourth edition of Marion Dowling’s much-loved book has been fully updated to include:
- Expanded coverage of key topics including independent thinking, living and learning with others, and dispositions for learning
- A new chapter on ‘Vulnerable Children and Fragile Families’, with sections on identifying risk, talking to families, and safeguarding and protection
- Guidance for working with parents in every chapter
- Updated links to the EYFS and a focus on two year olds.
This is essential reading for all Early Years students and practitioners, and anyone working with or caring for young children.
