Exemplary Practice with Three to Five-Year-Olds
The Pre-School room has the largest age range in the nursery with three-, four- and sometimes even five-year-olds. As practitioners you need to have a firm understanding of the stages of development each child is progressing through and how to support them. Your relationships with the three to five-year-olds are completely different to those with younger children. With this age range, the practitioner's role has changed to more of an "enabler". NDNA's "Exemplary Practice" series of short online courses provide practitioners with advanced activities, strategies and theories to use in their settings. Learners taking our three to five-year-olds course will be able to provide the highest and most exemplary practice to the children in their care. The course provides support activities to use with the children along with action plan templates. Course duration: 1.5 hours
