Hi , welcome to the Institute of Wellbeing’s refresher e-learning resource on increasing inclusion and wellbeing in early years settings.
We believe that understanding the role of wellbeing in people’s lives, and teaching them how to achieve it, is key to helping them make progress and enjoy their lives more fully.
As an early years practitioner you are in a position to help improve the wellbeing of children and their families at a crucial point in children’s development, when the foundations of their future lives are being laid. Children from families with high levels of wellbeing make faster and better progress in their education.
Working with all families in an inclusive way is a requirement of the Early Years Foundation framework. Ofsted will also look for evidence of a partnership with parents and that all children and families, especially those with special educational needs and disabilities, are equally able to access good early years settings.
