Helping Babies and Toddlers Learn is a practical book for people who work with children under three in childcare settings or in the family home. It aims to help practitioners tune into under-threes, to value what they are learning and enjoying right now, and not rush them on to what might seem more important skills or 'milestones'.
This second edition has been fully updated to reflect new developments in early years provision and guidance. With the support of examples, activities and encouragement for readers to reflect, Jennie Lindon highlights ways to:
- focus on what young children are really learning and ready to explore
- develop good practice that integrates physical care with communication and learning
- build on the 'window of opportunity' for learning in the very early years through play, shared routines and warm relationships
- work in partnership with colleagues and parents for children's emotional well-being use observation and flexible planning to support young children's all-round learning.
