Dr Kathryn Peckham on Supporting Children and their Families – In Practice

In this interview, we discuss how Dr Kathryn Peckham’s need to keep children at the centre of her practice led to her setting up Nurturing Childhoods to support parents and their children. Dr Peckham explains how she developed ‘Nurturing Childhoods’ from her doctoral research and observations of children when they transition from Early Years settings into more formal school settings.

She has practical advice - based on her many years of experience working in the sector and research - for helping families and children who may have anxiety and recognising their own triggers. Dr Peckham explains how resilience is important for all children, even from babyhood, and how we can build up resilience through our practice and the role of play in doing this.

We also discuss the Nurturing Childhood accreditation and how this CPD is specific to each setting and embeds good practice, based on DfE Teacher’s Professional Development Standards. We end by discussing MICE - Method of Improved Child Engagements – as way of invigorating engagement in classrooms
