Sue Asquith on Self-regulation


Sue Asquith’s experience in the Early Years sector began in 1998 as a registered childminder (graded Ofsted Outstanding twice). She progressed on to being a mentor, lead childminder affiliated with local children centres and an early lead language practitioner.

Sue has worked on Department for Education funded projects with charities including PACEY, ICAN, Communication Trust and NDNA. She has lead local authority projects as well as training and assessing throughout the UK and internationally. Her first book Self-Regulation Skills in Young Children was published by JKP in April 2020.

In this interview, Sue explains what we mean by self-regulation; how we can foster a sense of belonging in an Early Years setting; the challenges to self-regulation in general and especially the additional challenges has COVID-19 brought; how an understanding of neuroscience can help us to empathise with children; and reviewing the self-regulation for children in an Early Years setting.
