Advantages of this course
  • This course looks at the Key Elements of Effective Practice (KEEP), which was published by the DfES in 2005 and still has an influence on childcare practice today. This document, which looked at the impact of practitioners on effective practice in early years, found that through initial and on-going training and development, practitioners need to develop, demonstrate and continuously improve their:

 

  • Relationships with both children and adults
  • Understanding of the individual and diverse ways that children develop and learn
  • Knowledge and understanding in order to actively support and extend children’s learning in and across all areas and aspects of learning
  • Practice in meeting all children’s needs, learning styles and interests
  • Work with parents, carers and the wider community
  • Work with other professionals within and beyond the setting

 

  • The course also looks at other studies into early years provision, which are also useful resources to help practitioners reflect on and develop their practice
  • Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning
  • There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
