new moveable wheels, which are for parents/carers of five to twelve year
olds, follow on from the
production of our birth to five parenting wheel and along with our teenage wheel
it completes the 'family' of
wheels for parents and carers of children through to their adult years.
parenting practitioners, these wheels are split into eight sections and carries information on both sides for each age year. You simply twist
the wheel round to get to the section you currently need. On one side of the
wheel there are things that the child might/should be able to do and
also a list of things that the family can do to help the child.
The theme for the
five to twelve wheel is achievement and enjoyment in childhood. The reverse side of that
wheel gives parents information about how to help the child at each stage of
their development from five through to twelve years old.
Like the birth to
five wheel, this simple to use one piece tool comes laminated for a longer
lifespan and all of the information contained within it was written by childcare
practitioners to ensure that it will meet the needs of both parents and carers.
This simple to use
one piece tool (measuring
approx 230mm in diameter, so they are easy to carry around)
comes laminated for a longer lifespan and all of the information
contained within it was written by practitioners and early years advisors to
ensure that it will meet the needs of not only parents and carers, but also
practitioners, students and others working in early years.
