Childcare and early years
Early years self-assessment framework
A looked after child is likely to have experienced trauma, separation and significant disruption in their lives which can have an impact on their progress in the early years.
Children in care benefit from professionals working together to understand their needs and by early years practitioners understanding the impact of trauma and loss on a child’s emotional well-being and development.
Supporting learning and development
Foster carers and social workers have a vital role in raising the academic attainment of looked after children.
The early stages of child development are crucially important. At this foundation stage we need to make sure that our children aged 0-5 years receive as much opportunity as possible to develop, grow and flourish. These early stages of education are the foundations for further progress and development.
