This book, based on an 8-year evidence-based research study, offers real-life strategies to support social and emotional development and wellbeing for children aged 3- 5 years, in both educational and family settings. Deans, Frydenberg and Liang firmly contextualise their research in positive psychology, positive education, coping and resilience to demonstrate how parents and educators can make a sustainable impact in the lives of children.

This straightforward guide covers a range of topics including Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in the early years curriculum, how partnerships with communities can improve children’s SEL, and the relationship between coping, stress and mental health in a pre-school population. Throughout the book emphasis is placed on developing social emotional competence through practical examples of scaffolding activities and how these can be used by children and families to build personal resilience and well-being and positive relationships with family members and the community. The unique focus on measurement is designed to help practitioners in creating sustainable curriculum change rather than short-term solutions

Promoting Well-Being in the Pre-School Years is essential reading for teachers, parents and professionals who work with young children, as well as academics in child development.
