Achieving Early Years Professional Status requires candidates to demonstrate that they have effectively led the professional practice of their colleagues across the 0-5 age range. This book helps both Early Years students and experienced practitioners develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to do just that. It clearly explains the nature of the leadership required, and emphasises the need for an influencing role in modelling good practice and promoting appropriate values and principles.
