Achieving early years professional status.

Reardon, Denise.

Sage Publications


206 pages




Drawing on some 30 years of experience in early childhood education, Reardon (Canterbury Christ Church U.) presents a reflective text examining and critiquing government policy, frameworks, guidance, relevant research, and theory to support early years leaders to gain Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) credentials. The text is designed for use in the training and development of both existing early years practitioners and graduates who are new to the sector. Coverage includes an introduction to EYPS; the EYPS validation process; the qualities, knowledge, skills and understanding needed by an early years professional (EYP); effective practice; ways that EYPs incorporate assessment, routines and communication into effective practice; health and safety measures; relationships with children, families, and carers; team work and collaboration; and the final assessment processes used in the EYPS preparation program.
