Level 2 Children's Play, Learning and Development
About this course

Every child is special and unique but each of us learns to do things according to the same pattern. What is your earliest memory? Can you remember how old you were when you learnt to swim? Were there some things you found easy to achieve and some that took a bit longer to learn?

Understanding child development may help you to answer these questions and it will explain why, as individuals, we develop skills and knowledge at different rates.
