Abstract or description

This chapter will focus on child development and how the Early Childhood Graduate Competencies (2020) (with a direct focus on Competency 2) provide a foundation on which to support, promote and facilitate the holistic development of children; this will include reference to Spiritual; Intellectual; Emotional; Social & Physical key definitions. Two (separate) real-life case studies from an education setting and a hospital will be used to support your understanding around Competency 2 (Promote Holistic Development) with reference about how children’s development is affected by hospitalisation i.e. being unwell and undergoing medical/surgical treatments and investigation. Furthermore, there will be a keen focus around unpicking theoretical perspectives with a tighter focus on Bronfenbrenner (1989) about a child’s holistic development and the implications for practice.
