KEEP, The Key Elements of Effective Practice

In order to provide a high standard of care and education for children, early years practitioners work hard at their job role, constantly maintaining a high level of dedication and enthusiasm. A broad knowledge base, continuous training and development, and a level of understanding that radiates to all children (and parents) are all key concepts within the Key Elements of Effective Practice (KEEP) statement that was published in 2005 by the Department of Education and Skills (DfES).
