This course will introduce practitioners to the Solihull Approach model as applied to working with babies, young children and their families in an early years setting and will link to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).


The First Five Years, Solihull Approach Resource Pack will be allocated to settings that do not already have a copy according to Bolton Start Well records.

This resource pack has a comprehensive set of handouts for parents, on various issues in the first five years: sleeping; weaning; toileting; playing; emotional and physical development.

The resource pack includes photocopiable handouts for parents.

What will I learn?

At the end of this course, we will be able to:

• Understand how to put the theory into practice;
• Identify how the Solihull Approach model supports the EYFS and how they link together; and
• Know how the Solihull Approach model can add to the understanding of the EYFS.
