The Early Years Learning Framework reminds us that ‘children’s learning is dynamic, complex and holistic', where ‘physical, social, emotional, personal, spiritual, creative, cognitive and linguistic aspects of learning are all intricately interwoven and interrelated’. The principles of Belonging, Being and Becoming provide us with a reference to attend to one of the key Learning Outcomes integral to the holistic development of children – that of wellbeing. With wellbeing underpinning our pedagogy and practice, we enable children to engage in the learning environment with confidence and a sense of positivity. Recognising the increasing importance of the mental health and wellbeing of children in research and international policy frameworks, together we will consider the important role that significant adults play in influencing the lives of children - nurturing the mind, body and spirit of all within our care.
