4. Acknowledge children as competent learners and build active communities of engagement and inquiry. – the carer is not acknowledging that the child is a competent learner and building an active environment, 5. Sensitive to the vulnerabilities of children and families and respond in
When a child is going through a difficult time such as a family break up it is important to put the child’s needs first because if you don’t the child may not be able to achieve their full potential. A way to do this is by having a child centred practice and planning around a child, so that the routine fits around the child and their individual needs are planned for. In my placement the practitioners would plan out what they are going to do, while making sure individual needs are taken into consideration. It is important to work closely with other professionals when planning for transitions because they would be able to help provide the appropriate support the child will need, this can be done by working in partnership with professionals that can help with that transition and coming up with a plan or routine to follow to support the child.
Which means that helping the child/ren feel loved, minimizing additional changes and, maintaining a routine is critical. Finally, while we as early childhood professionals offer our support what we are able to do is limited to a certain degree; therefore, the list of external local resources is readily available to help the child/ren and their families adjust to the
In reference to group size they should look for a ratio between 1:3 and 1:6. Caregivers should be trained and experienced in working in a child care setting. In addition, the caregiver should be nurturant, supportive, and responsive to children’s cues. Staffing- low staff turnover, staff support, and only one or two caregivers should be responsible for the same child. Curriculum- planned in advance and emphasis on development.
When supporting children individually, you can ensure you give tailored support specific for that child’s needs instead of having to consider the needs of others. It is an ideal situation to be in but sadly it is often an unrealistic one. Therefore it is important to plan and prepare for such events to ensure you can get the most out of the session. Before you aim to support a child in this way, you must first get to know the child, their likes/dislikes, any special requirements/IEP’s/SEN’s etc. A brief conversation with their parent or carer or, if that is not possible, their class teacher, can provide you with the right information if the right questions are asked.
• CG 4.1 How do you ensure that families are kept aware of what 's happening in their child 's daily/weekly life in your program? I make sure that families are kept aware of their child’s life on a daily and weekly basis by providing them with the information from their child’s day on a daily report. I also make sure that I communicate with them both positive and negative things are their child’s day. I want to keep a healthy relationship between myself and the child’s parents and to do so I need to communicate with them about their child’s day.
the best way to support a child to manage risks themselves is to let the child take appropriate responsibility for safety decisions in a controlled environment. Increase the levels of risk as the child grows and matures. Support and help parents to encourage their children to manage risks for themselves. You must also be aware of children who are timid and who are reluctant to take risks and help them to develop their skills but most children have an inbuilt level of
All practitioners must provide an inclusive environment that promote diversity. Inclusive practice is important in early years setting for all children whether, disabilities or learning difficulties have the right to have meet their needs met, also the EYFS frame work makes it clear to ensure that diversity of individuals is valued and respected and no child or family is discriminated again of ethnicity, culture, or religion, home language, background, learning difficulties, or disabilities also practitioners ensure that every child is unique who is learning and is capable, confidant and self-assured, children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships and also children learn and develop in safe environment. The roles
I am able to discuss any work related concerns during my supervision as well and discuss my professional development. Staff is able to access courses, workshops and seminars that enhance the knowledge relating to the implementation of safeguarding policies. Weekly staff meetings improve working practice allowing staff to discuss child safeguarding issues. Nevertheless, not everyone in the team holds same level of safeguarding training, especially agency staff or volunteers that come in contact with children and families, creating great risk to their
D1/D2/A1 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. When planning for a child to start a new setting there will be certain things that will need to be taken into consideration, for example; the child at hand may have never been separated from their primary carers beforehand.
Lord Laming produced a report called Every Child Matters which should ensure that each child should have their basic needs met i.e. food, water, warmth, be loved, feel safe respected and able to reach their full potential. The report has 5 outcomes: â€¢ being healthy: enjoying good physical and mental health and living a healthy lifestyle â€¢ staying safe: being protected from harm and neglect â€¢ enjoying and achieving: getting the most out of life and developing the skills for adulthood â€¢ making a positive contribution: being involved with the community and society and not engaging in anti-social or offending behaviour â€¢ Economic well-being: not being prevented by economic disadvantage from achieving their full potential in life. The needs and views of the child must not go un-noticed by putting the needs of the adult first. The wishes and feelings of the child should be a priority.
Analyze and describe my own style of caregiving, as far as I am a preschool caregiver, I enforce my self to being authoritative and responsiveness. Demonstrate respecting to each child is the first reason of I have chosen to be responsiveness. There is a belief of mine that children’s “core of personal values” (power point slide P16) will start to building up in their childhood. “be willing to give explanations” (P16) would feed child’s knowledge in each stage they face to. From my experience with toddlers, some of young toddler may not speak fluency, but they are smart enough to understand the responsiveness by adults whom they put trust on, with listening and watching your facial reaction.
