This course is a module of the CACHE Level 3 Preparing to Work in Home Based Childcare course. This aimed at those about to embark on a home based childcare career as well as those working as a home based childcarer wanting to refresh their knowledge.
Event Content This course is an interactive workshop designed to enable participants to discuss and share good practice and knowledge with colleagues working within childcare and those just about to embark on their career.

During the session we will explore the factors that influence child development including:
• Antenatal influences

• Postnatal influences
• Poverty and Deprivation
• Family environment and background
