Touch is unavoidable when working with young children and is essential within the early years to ensure children are safe and supported. Touch is a key component of healthy child development and is necessary within early years settings, so practitioners must be able to provide appropriate and beneficial touch to the children who they care for to ensure that they can flourish in later life.
