This isn't about health and safety as such, it's about building the foundations of children's 'well-being': emotionally as well as physically.
Helping Children to Stay Healthy covers:
- emotional well-being
- growing and developing
- keeping safe
- healthy choices.
This handy little series of books links directly to the Government’s Birth to Three Matters Framework (DfES 2002). It provides information and ideas for you to read and digest at your own pace, then implement or share with your team.
