In this book, Sue Cowley looks at the way that behaviour develops during the earliest years of a child's life, exploring how babies and young children learn behaviours and move from co-regulation to self-regulation. She gives practical advice about how to support children in learning all aspects of positive behaviour while they are in your early years setting. She explores the different behaviours that children need to learn and develop in order to be happy and successful learners in their future school careers and beyond.
From learning how to share, to learning how to pay attention; from learning how to be responsible, to learning how to be kind. This book covers all these learning behaviours and much, much more. Learning Behaviours is a book full of practical strategies, realistic suggestions and down to earth advice. Sue offers a step by step guide to getting behaviour right, and a range of case studies to help you understand how the approaches work in practice. Sue Cowley is a qualified early years teacher, the author of over 30 books for teachers and an internationally renowned teacher trainer. She has helped to run her local early years setting for the last ten years.
