Publisher Description

Promoting Well-Being in the Pre-School Years provides evidence-based research and real-life strategies that support social and emotional development and well-being for children aged 3–5 years. It places emphasis on nurturing social emotional competence through purposeful scaffolding activities and how these can be used by children and families to create a harmonious platform for building resilience and positive relationships with family and the community.

Drawing on principles from Positive Psychology and Positive Education, it is illustrated throughout with examples of sustainable practice in diverse, global settings. Key topics explored include:





Contemporary well-being concepts, including ‘grit’, ‘growth mindset’ and ‘gratitude’, as well as ‘classic’ constructs such as coping and self-efficacy



The attitudes and skills that need to be developed to ensure that young children flourish



Cognitive and sociocultural perspectives complemented by neuroscience and epigenetics



Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in the early years curriculum



Using visual tools – the Early Years Coping Cards



How we measure young children’s coping



The relationship between coping, stress and mental health



Recognition of the importance of parents’ own coping skills



How partnerships with communities can improve children’s SEL.




Promoting Well-Being in the Pre-School Years shows how we can support young children to develop an understanding of what it means to be happy and to flourish as a socially responsible member of the family and wider community. It is essential reading for teachers, parents and professionals who work with young children, as well as academics in child development.
