      a must for the course

      This book was the first place I looked for any information I needed during my Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education course.

      The book is written clearly and is easy to understand. It uses tables and diagrams to hhelp illustrate ideas clearer and is full of pictures which makes it more interesting to other similar books.

      The book is split into chapters (one for each unit), but I found if you were doing e.g. Unit 2 it may also be in any other unit.

      The Units included are:
      Unit 1 An introduction to working with children
      Unit 2 development from conception to age 16 years
      Unit 3 supporting children
      Unit 4 keeping children safe
      Unit 5 the principles underpinning the role of the practitioner working with children
      Unit 6 promoting a healthy environment for children
      Unit 7 play and learning in children's education
      Unit 8 caring for children
      Unit 9 development of professional skills within children's education

      Not all optional units are included but the ones that are are:
      Unit 11 care of sick children
      Unit 12 nutrition and healthy food for children
      Unit 14 working with children with special needs
      Unit 16 developing childrens communication, language and literach skills
      Unit 18 working with babies from birth to 12 months


      Each chapter has an introduction to the chapter and a case study which I never really used but it was there if I needed it.

      Throughout the book are 'find out' boxes which suggest places to find relevant information. This is very useful as it saves you time looking yourself. 'did you know' boxes are filled with interesting facts and statistics which are good for assignments and
      'key terms' have definitions of vital words. This is better than a dictionary as it gives meanings that are relevant to children and what you need to know.

      'getting ready for assessment' gives questions to think about that are generally part of the assignments.

      'good practice checklists' show you how to meet good practice with children.

      This book is the best accompaniment to the Cache level 3 childcare and education. At the same time as I did the level three course my anty did the level two and we found that often what I needed was in her book and what she needed was in mine but nevertheless still worth getting the book.
