The student will also gain valuable experience of working alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage and Development Matters guidance, which are crucial aspects of policy and curriculum guidance within early years. Throughout this chapter you will start to understand how to prepare for placement and what to expect when you are there, whilst considering development of personal and professional skills.
