In Level 2 Childcare, students are required to be able to describe the expected development of a child from birth to 5 years.  Ms Childs (Head of English) came into Mrs Bown’s Childcare class to talk about this with a really cute prop, her 8 week old baby Ethan.  She brought in his first clothes, so the students could appreciate how much he has grown in his first eight weeks.  Ms Childs explained that he now sleeps for four hours at a time and that is considered an improvement on waking up every 45 minutes when he was newborn.

Ms Childs fed Ethan, changed his nappy and showed students how to put him into a sling.
