Emotional literacy and health and wellbeing have been placed at the heart of good practice by the Every Child Matters (ECM) agenda and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in England, and the Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland, and this book will give clear guidance and lots of practical strategies for how to implement this ethos in your setting.

  • Circle Time
  • drama
  • physical education
  • storytelling
  • outdoor play
  • active learning

It highlights the benefits of this ethos for all, and looks at how the emotionally literate setting supports inclusion and promotes achievement. Full of case studies of children aged 3 to 8, ideas for practice, photographs, points for reflection, photocopiable materials and accompanied by a wide range of downloadable material available at http://www.sagepub.co.uk/bruce this book is an indispensable guide for the early years practitioner.

It is highly relevant to those looking at the transition from Early Years to Primary education, as well as the social, emotional and behavioural needs of young children.
