SAGE, Feb 1, 2011 - Education - 136 pages
Students on Early Years placements face many challenges, from understanding the Early Years Foundation Stage, to coping with the immediate needs of individual children. This accessible guide begins by examining the diverse range of Early Years settings and how to prepare for placements. It goes on to look at the four areas of the EYFS and covers working with individual children, building positive relationships with children, colleagues and parents, creating and working in an enabling environment and supporting children's learning needs. A complete guide to the placement experience, this book supports students on their journey from student to qualified practitioner.
