EYMP4 – Professional practice in early years settings

Explain how the range of early years settings reflects the scope and purpose of the sector

The early year’s sector was not developed by government policy with specific aims but was created in response to the requirements of families to change economical and social factors. Therefore public expenditure focused on families with social needs and difficulties. Local authority day nurseries catered mainly for children who were at risk from harm mainly in deprived areas. The Private sector held childminders, nannies and private nurseries available.
The playgroup movement developed during the 1960s where parents set up and ran provision for their own children to learn through play in village halls and other community facilities.

Families requirements for their children vary some parents want care for their children so that they can return to work, some parents want to stay with their children while they socialise, some parents want their children in settings which offer services aimed at learning. Others may want their children to be in a home based environment but unfortunately not every family can afford to pay provision fees, therefore the early year’s sector has various forms of provision to meet the needs of all families. The childcare provision includes:

Mother and toddler groups
A place were the toddler can socialise with other children their age, whilst the mother or father can stay and learn more ways to look after and help with the child's development
Pre-school

Day care
A day care is for children from the age of 3 months to 5 years, they have different classes for children of different ages and the parents can
