The chapter will critically discuss and outline the Welsh Government’s funded training on the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) with early years practitioners. Welsh Government policy framework is central to understanding the provision of rights and provision rights within an early year’s context in Wales. Children’s rights provision it is suggested could be enhanced through personal development opportunities that include reflection and application in practice and has the potential to contribute to debates on the social construction of children’s rights. Co-construction of knowledge was one positive outcome of the training / provision of rights and the process of raising awareness of the importance of provision rights in an early year’s context. A second outcome was a further understanding of how rights are socially and politically situated; illustrating the importance of enabling praxis within children’s rights professional development.
