This is a complete guide to supporting personal, social and emotional development in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), promoting a holistic approach and sharing good practice. "Personal, Social and Emotional Development" introduces this area of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to trainee and qualified early years professionals. The personal, social and emotional development of children aged between 0-5 years is introduced within the context of the EYFS. A balanced approach to the Early Learning Goals is encouraged ensuring that key principles of good early years practice are maintained and developed, and the holistic development of the child is promoted. This user-friendly guide will support early years professionals to: reflect on current practice and develop skills; evaluate the implications of research for early years practice and provision; promote interdisciplinary teamwork between those who work with and support young children; meet the diverse needs of children at different developmental stages and ages; and, support children as they move within and beyond the EYFS.
This series introduces each of the six areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Language, Literacy and Communication; Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy; Knowledge and Understanding of the World; Creative Development; and, Physical Development. Each book delivers accessible yet rigorous support for practitioners, whether training or qualified, in developing their professional understanding and practice in each of these Early Learning Goals. Whilst considering each area in turn, the aim throughout the series is to promote the holistic development of the child. Each volume includes: an introduction to the key area; consideration of the development of children in the key area from birth to 3 years; 3 to 5 years; and into 5 to 7 years; consideration of the holistic development of the child and the impact of that development on the key area being discussed; research evidence to support practice; practical examples of good practice; discussions on leadership in the key area; and, support in the development of pedagogical skills and reflective professional practice.
In line with the aims of the EYFS, this series will help you in meeting the challenges that come with supporting the different needs of children, working in multi-professional partnerships, balancing the different areas of development, and supporting transitions within and beyond the EYFS.
'Written in a highly readable, digestible manner, this book provides a sound grounding in the theory and research evidence underpinning choices early years professionals need to make about how to support personal, social and emotional development with appropriate, high quality provision. Full of lively examples of how children learn as their personal, social and emotional skills develop, the book is closely linked to the relevant aspects of EYFS Learning and Development. It guides readers through each aspect, relating them to children from 0-7 years and making clear the interwoven nature of development; personal, social and emotional development impact on and pervade all other areas of learning and development in young children. Examples of young children at play and the subsequent analyses act to illustrate the holistic nature of development, whilst in themselves providing exemplars for new professionals of how to interpret and use observations to support and extend children's experiences. Equally important is the way in which the book encourages both early career professionals and experienced leaders in early years to think critically about what they do, why they do it and how it can be improved. With its practical tasks, case studies and reflective tasks, new or trainee professionals and experienced leaders alike will find much to guide and challenge them in this enjoyable book.'
