Child development is one of the most important parts of the job for Early Years practitioners. Children develop in stages, and those stages see them move from being entirely dependent at the youngest stages, to increasingly independent and unique individuals.

This course will look at the development of a child between ages three and five-years-old, along with ways to improve the development of a child and aspects of life that can halt progression. This stage is an exciting time in a child’s development but presents its own challenges, as everything is new and ever-changing for children.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand how the brain works in relation to development
  2. To understand the key areas of development between three – five years old
  3. To know strategies and techniques to help develop three – five-year-olds
  4. To understand barriers to development, how to help them and when to seek support

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.

Should you wish to discuss your training needs based on the children in your care, please call 0800 774 787.
