Synopsis
This accessible guide to child development is written specifically for students of degrees and foundation degrees in Early Years, Early Childhood Studies and related disciplines and for early years practitioners. It introduces the context of child development, how we can develop an understanding of this development and how early years practitioners can support this in practice. It considers the biological/social debate, explores holistic development, examines factors affecting development and includes a chapter on reflective practice. This second edition has been updated to include new guidance for the revised Early Years Foundation Stage. It covers the development check at age two and looks in detail at how a learning of child development relates to early years practice. This edition also includes a new chapter introducing a critique of developmentalism. Throughout, new case studies have been included and interactive activites have been enhanced.
