Emotional Health and Well Being

Increasingly, EYFS practitioners are finding the Cycle of Development material from this website to be extremely helpful in helping them to:

  • Support children develop their uniqueness as they increasingly get to grips with growing up socially and emotionally
  • Create an enabling environment where they can learn and thrive
Staff have started to use it, for example, to:
  • Support their assessment and profiling processes;
  • Improve transition arrangements between EYFS and Key Stage 1
  • Get a better understanding of the children's behaviour – and in particular whether behaviour causing concern is actually what is to be expected given the child's developmental stage or indicates the need for further support
