To attain EYPS, candidates must demonstrate that they can establish fair, respectful, trusting and constructive relationships with children. This book helps those on EYPS pathways to understand and develop these important relationships. It begins by examining trust as a key theme and goes on to discuss how to 'tune in' to individual children and how to 'tune out' or say goodbye. It gives practical advice on helping children build resilience and take risks. Positive relationships with children are examined within the context of relationships with others and the text also considers how practitioners can support other professionals in their setting.
Why trust? The key to positive relationships
Time to tune-in ... and out
Respect for self and others
Understanding relationships with children in the context of professional boundaries

I liked the tone of this book . It presents a positive and sensitive approach to realtionships in the professional world of childcare. A useful text for any level of childcare training. The author is knowleageable of the sector and contemporary in the way she writes.
