3. Inform Your Child's Swimming Instructor of His or Her Progress Overcoming Fear Once your child begins embracing water play instead of dreading it, ask him or her if they think swimming lessons would help them have more fun with the other children they may see swimming while they are playing in the water. If they agree, then you know that you have made great progress in helping your child conquer their fear. When you schedule swimming lessons for your child, make sure that all instructors are aware of your child's fear and progress, so they can be sure to give your child the personalized attention he or she needs. If your child fears large bodies of water, then realize that this is a common fear that can be overcome.
• Washing hands – All services should have policies and procedures implemented within their program to encourage good hygiene such as washing hands, educators should role model these practises and teach the children when it’s appropriate to wash their hands, such as after they have been to the toilet, before and after meal times, and if they are sick to prevent the spread of infection through droplets in the air. Also educators need to be washing their hands before and after administering medication and changing children’s nappies, wiping snotty noses, dealing with bodily fluids and also wearing gloves as a barrier to prevent infection spreading. (Canberra, 2012) • Cleaning – All toys, surfaces and equipment in the service should be regularly cleaned and disinfected with warm soapy water, this helps prevent the spread of germs as depending on the age of the children they often go through stages of putting things in their mouths, and by cleaning floors and surfaces will help to keep dust and general dirt and grime to a minimum and also prevent the spread of infections. •
With Pavlov’s theory of classical conditioning the students can also be conditioned to learn a skill and then respond in practice due to a stimuli which could slightly or immensely trigger the response of the social hand wash. The student is taught the technique through learning by observation demonstrated by the educator in simulation. Together with this they are taught the reasons why the social hand wash technique is learnt in order to develop insight into the procedure. The steps are taught to them and they themselves repeat the steps multiple times in simulation. The hand washing is then assessed by practical examination the expected outcome is that when students are in practice that they may identify the moments when hand washing is needed.
Physical- One way physical needs were met was through the access of water which created a plentiful source of low cost refreshment throughout the day. All children had a water bottle which was kept in the classroom. Children were given ready access to water throughout the day. Water provision: encouraged good health and wellbeing among the children, reduced tiredness, irritability and distraction from thirst, had a positive effect on children’s concentration throughout the day and raised awareness of the importance of adequate fluid intake and healthy eating as part of a healthy and active life. Another way physical needs were met was through a healthy balanced school dinner catered around the needs of the children.
