health and wellbeing
For children to be happy, they need to be healthy and well. Wellbeing apart from good physical health also includes feeling of happiness, satisfaction and successful social functioning. It influences the way children interact with their environment, learn and progress. Children's wellbeing can be affected by their experiences within and outside of their early childhood setting so it is important to promote it as part of their everyday learning at home and in the setting. Please see below some useful handouts to help you with this crucial area of development.
