Lorraine Grant works as an Early Years practitioner working in a local authority nursery situated in a small town in rural Aberdeenshire in the northeast of Scotland. This case study was researched as part of the ED2507 course -Supporting the Health and Well-being of Young Children which is part BA Childhood Practice degree at the University of Aberdeen.
Recently, I have been conversing with parents, children and my preschool colleagues about how we support children’s health and well-being both daily and long term. I have carried out a series of planned and spontaneous observations on two children in order to build detailed profiles. Observing in this way allows me to create a holistic, honest account of their overall health and well-being.
