New report on Parent-Child interactions – what works?

Definitely worth reading – but no mention here of the critical importance of Physical Development. Yet again, the developmental domain that underpins and supports all learning is omitted. Why? The three areas of child development highlighted in this review – attachment, behaviour and cognitive/language development – are profoundly affected by the range of physical opportunities experienced by young children. A useful report – but failing to include physical development just speaks volumes about the lack of awareness and understanding regarding this field that continues to prevail in the EY sector.
