  • Job shadowing in a setting partners setting and observing each other’s practice to gain a better understanding of the role of the early years practitioner in relation to their educational system, curriculum and provision;
  • To gain a better knowledge and understanding of how the setting partners are supporting toddlers’ wellbeing through the different intellectual outputs and materials:
    • Toddlers’ wellbeing,
    • Toddlers’ voices and expressions,
    • Toddlers’ mealtimes and
    • Toddlers’ early language(s)
  • To reflect, contrast and compare the ways of working and strategies developed to support toddlers’ wellbeing.
