About The Course

This unique half-day course is designed to assist social care professionals, early year’s practitioners and teaching staff to meet the EYFS early learning goals and their settings welfare and safeguarding requirements. This course guides delegates into effectively communicating with children either during 1-1 sessions or as a group using the 'Tales of Bushey Lane' Book and Activity Packs. The book and packs open conversations with children to inform practitioners of a greater understanding of the child’s world.
