Event description
This course is aimed at apprentices and level 2 practitioners as well as those new or returning to the early years.

This course will cover…
Session 1:
A Unique Child – This session will explore and enhance your knowledge of child development as a sequence of physical, language and emotional changes.
Positive relationships – This session will be an opportunity to reflect on attachment and the importance of key people in the child’s life. You will deepen your knowledge of how to promote positive behaviour through self-regulation and emotional literacy.

Learning and Development - The final session will consolidate your learning through the importance of understanding and analysing your observations and assessments of children in order to tailor your planning.
