In the experience of the authors, there are no basic guides for child care students working with children from birth to the age of 7 on how to achieve success in training placements and work experience. Despite preparation in college, the practical work, the routines of the placement, and the expectations of supervisors can often prove daunting. Thus, this book leaves the theoretical aspects of child care to college tutors and instead focuses on practical requirements and the need to exhibit professionalism.

The new edition includes a brand new chapter on Child Protection, case studies, progress checks and pointers to good practice, and an up-to-date and comprehensive guide to all aspects of the child-care placement.
