Description

Promoting British Values in the Early Years explores what is meant by British values and how these can be promoted in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The book encourages practitioners to reflect on their own attitudes and beliefs and highlights the importance of parents, children and practitioners working together to create inclusive communities. It also examines how and why it is important to foster a sense of belonging, provide inspiration and promote positive attitudes in order to improve outcomes for children.

With case studies and useful links to the EYFS, this book will help readers to nurture children’s sense of identity and support them in becoming responsible citizens, celebrating diversity and valuing different cultures, customs and practices. It offers practical guidance on how to develop children’s understanding of liberty and democracy, and a mutual tolerance and respect for different faiths and beliefs.

This book will be of interest to Early Years practitioners and primary school teachers, as well as undergraduates studying relevant Early Years and Childhood Studies courses. It is also relevant to parents of young children.
