Fully updated to reflect the changes to the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) qualification, this second edition remains the essential handbook to support all those considering or working towards EYPS and on whichever pathway they embark.  

Although closely linked to the standards required for EYPS, and their interface with the Early Years Foundation Stage, the book is not a mechanical standard-by-standard manual but offers support in developing an organic, holistic perspective on childcare and education, combining practical skills with knowledge development. The text includes case studies based on real practice scenarios, ideas for practical activities, further reading, reflection, interviews and advice from EYPS candidates who have successfully negotiated the validation process.

“A thorough analysis of the contemporary new-era EYPS programme. … The book presents a multi-disciplinary perspective and will add value to those studying across each of the new-era EYPS pathways.” 

Denise Reardon, Department of Childhood Studies, Canterbury Christ Church University

“The Early Years Professional’s Complete Companion is a valuable resource for any practitioner undertaking or considering Early Years Professional Status. It provides a wealth of support, ideas and guidance for anyone considering EYPS, as well as those who are already on the journey to achieving the award.”

Emma Slaughter, Regional Service Leader (EYPS), Eastern Leadership Centre

“This textbook will help students to build on their own knowledge and practice; it supports their thinking and encourages them to critically evaluate themselves via case studies, reflection and further reading. A very informative book which will help candidates on their EYPS journey.”

Nikki Fairchild, EYPS Programme Coordinator, University of Chichester
