Updated to reflect the revised 2012 EYFS. Early years practitioners in all group setting, up to and including reception class, are expected to have a key person system that enables them to focus on individual children and families as part of the EYFS. This title gives practitioners a background of good practice around the key person approach, the meaning of the approach and how this can work in practice. The book features examples of best practice as well as issues commonly faced by practitioners, including settling children in and how to manage attachment issues. The book also gives thoughtful guidance to early years leaders or managers on how to encourage and foster the key person system in their setting.
