“The Pearson Children’s Learning and Development book is a perfect resource for anyone, whether they are a learner or assessor, as it supports varying levels of knowledge and understanding.
As a company we recommend the book to all our students. We purchased the Children’s Learning and Development book in September 2014 for our childcare assessment team and we’ve found it provides great support for learners in the workplace.
The assessment team recognises the content of the books as user friendly, and the case studies are useful for learners' research tasks. The reflection boxes allow assessors to plan effectively to meet the unit outcomes.
Learners have particularly enjoyed the jargon busters which support their understanding of the knowledge criteria, and the pictograms and tables are consistently used by learners when completing activities as they can locate the information rapidly.”
