Early Years Recovery Curriculum

A Trauma Informed Approach to Supporting Children

The social-distancing measures that have been put in place as part of the response to COVID-19 have disrupted the normal routines of children and young people and curtailed their freedom. Some will have found this time traumatic. 

By planning carefully how we re-configure our learning spaces during the gradual return to settings, we can help children begin their recovery journey. 

This short video, which has been prepared by SEND Support professionals, considers the reasons why some children may have found the lock down period traumatic, how their experience might influence their behaviour and the ways in which early years professionals can support recovery.

A PowerPoint presentation is also available for use within settings and SEND Support Professionals can provide further in-depth bespoke training too.
