In order to contribute a positive relationship it is essential to demonstrate and model an effective communication skill when dealing with children which means that considering both how the practitioner approach other people and responding the children. It is effectively more likely to communicate information to one another if having a positive relationship. Effective communication plays an important role in developing positive relation with children, young people and adults. It is also essential that the practitioner is interested in development of the children by using effective communication skills, building a positive relationship, approaching and responding in appositive manner, making feel comfortable or supporting which it’s required.
As a setting it is our responsibility to note down all events seen, including the date, time and where it took place. It is also important to monitor this, seeing if the child comes to the nursery like this often, or on particular days. It is our duty to safeguard the child and if we feel that they are being 'neglected' we have the right to report it. However, we could support the mother by having an informal meeting, talking about any issues that she may be having. We can also support the children by creating a safe and welcoming environment, allowing them to feel comfortable to be able to talk to staff if they have any problems. The younger child, however can be supported by ensuring she has clean clothes when she comes into the setting, so that she is not comfortable. We could support all children and mum by monitoring the children's behaviour, learning and development more regularly, making it more efficient to act upon if something begins to slip, such as their development in health and self care. Within this case, it would be crucial to support self care skills by making activities to improve the children's knowledge on, for example the morning routine (getting dressed and brushing teeth for example).
This piece of work will be focusing on a child aged 18 months starting a nursery day care setting. The two key issues that will be looked at in this assignment will be planning, preparing and reviewing for the child to settling into the setting. Secondly I will be looking into the child’s emotional support that the child may need when starting the setting, along with the attachments of the child that will need to be built or have already been put in place.
Within my placement setting in Aspire Scotland there are legislation protecting the children and young people ensuring good health, wellbeing and safeguarding. One of the legislations in place is the Regulation of Care Act 2001. The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) is a non-departmental public body established by this act From this the SSSC produced the codes of practice which was produced to protect people who use services, raise standards of practice and support workers.
1.1 Explain why working in partnership with others is important for children and young people
1. Partnerships with families and communities support shared responsibility for children’s learning, development, and wellbeing. – I believe this is a breach of the code because knowing that children can understand this sort of negativity can cause them to have set backs which would not honour the parent’s wishes or the child’s development.
Special attention needs to be given to health and education to ensure the child is healthy in all
Quality in the Early Years is based on the respected educational goals and practice of the cultural communities making up a society. A definition of quality in the early years differs by the perspectives of each of the settings stakeholders (Huntsman, 2008). It comprises of a range of things that change between and depends entirely on the needs of each individual. Today in Ireland early year’s educators in settings throughout the country are increasingly more challenged to provide quality services that meet both the requirements and expectations of each child attending their settings and also their families (CECDE, 2006).
Being a pre-service training educator, specific goals and objectives should be set to achieve educator’s own educational philosophy. The Educational philosophy is an individual statement of educators’ guiding principles about the education-related
In early childhood education, it is important for teachers to always consider and understand children and the families’ needs. Early childhood teachers cannot only work with their colleagues to face children and the families’ needs but also need to work with multi-disciplinary to collaborate the ideas with each other and discuss the best outcome for the children and the families in early childhood education setting together. So, the more explanation about the multi-disciplinary team is that teachers with different professionals such as psychologists, child social worker, police, adult social worker, health visitor or court working together to provide different services and support for children and the families’ needs. They are diverse professional groups who work together in order to collaborate, reflect, access and support children’s development, health and learning and also families' needs. Early childhood professionals are from diverse professional backgrounds. They use multidisciplinary approaches to provide better support to families and draw on the skills and expertise of their peers.
