Learn about the theories and approaches to early years that practitioners use to support child development. What will I learn?From Bowlby to Piaget, from Froebel to Te Whariki, it is vital that practitioners understand the theories on child development, and also the different approaches that can be used in early years. With a key section on neuroscience, this online course will give practitioners the knowledge of child development that will help them respond accurately and effectively to a child’s needs.We cover the range of research and evidence available that can help to deepen understanding of children’s behaviour, reactions and the ways in which they learn and develop. The course will help practitioners to understand the ways in which young children learn, based on evidence from theories and research. Learners will explore how some of the most widely recognised whole-setting approaches support children’s learning and development. Course key topics
