‘The number of two-year-olds entering our settings has been increasing over the last few years, and with the government set to continue with the expansion of free places, more and more practitioners will be caring for children in this age range for the first time. For those who still think in terms of the 'terrible twos', this book serves as a vital and urgent wake-up call. Whether experienced professional or someone starting out on an early years career, it has a great deal to recommend it. ‘
This is a really valuable resource for practitioners and those entering the field of Early Years and Education. The identity of the sector is changing fast with the addition of more two year olds in formal setting and this book is an excellent support for good practice and guides the reader through the processes of delivering, assessing and planning for two year old children.
good book for ECT
Useful book for undergraduate early years students
Great text for students to focus in on this important age range. Accessible to students from level 4 to level 6
Considering a few sessions focused specifically on development of 2 year olds and this book will be great as additional reading for those who feel that they need it. Particularly like the photocopiable pages
An interesting text to support practice with the age group that the book discusses. This is a less useful text for supporting academic writing.
A timely book with good checklists for support!
A useful guide to develop knowledge in young children
A useful guide for all early years practitioner.clear descriptions for the recording of development in young children. Nicely laid out and easy to use for tutor and student as well as those in settings who wish to update and and be updated with links to theory and practice.
An accessible and readable book with practice examples about provision for very young children. A timely book.
The course has finished and will not be run again here but i have adopted for the new Early Years educator qualification.
This is a useful guide for anyone new to the early years practitioner role, as it clearly outlines what development might be considered typical in young children of this age. Reference to theory-based reading is identified, which is welcomed for students undertaking academic study, however this book could have been further enhanced if this underpinning theory was woven into the actual text of the book, making it more appropriate as a resource for undergraduates. Whether an experienced professional or someone starting out on an early year’s career it is a good read which is recommended.
A useful text for those working with children under 2 years of age.
This is a useful guide for novice practitioners regarding what development might be considered typical in young children. However, whilst plenty of additional, more theory-based reading is identified, there is little underpinning theory woven into the actual text, making it more suitable as a supplementary resource of undergraduates rather than a recommended one.
EXtremely useful overview with some good checklists.
Particularly good for students who are thinking about progressing onto the Early Years Teacher status qualification.
Very interesting book which could be used for level 2 and 3 learners.
Much needed guidance,
