Guidance on best practice and EYFS statutory requirements
Focus on each strand of the 'A Unique Child' theme for Inclusive Practice
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 provides a purposeful guide to best practice, inviting practitioners to reflect on three main strands: equality and diversity; children's
entitlements; early support.
Real case studies are included, with typical examples describing how requirements are and should be met.
Ensuring that every aspect of early years practice is inclusive is vital to providing the highest quality education for young children and their families.
This book offers essential guidance on how to:
Plan and resource a truly inclusive environment
Ensure that all children and their families are fully included in your setting
Lead an inclusive team and foster reflective practice
Ensure your setting fulfils UK legislative and policy requirement
This title will also help early years practitioners and managers put inclusive practice in action. The many practical examples and points for reflection
support readers to gain confidence in their own skills and assess whether their current provision could work better for young children.
