During my time at placement I was given the role of a Nursery Assistant; My duties were to plan and prepare activities for children, read stories, nappy change them, observe and make notes for use in their reports. I was also a key worker for one child, I had to monitor their progress and share information about their development with their parents and carers. The setting was a warm and welcoming environment, I found that all of the staff were very friendly and reassuring. The placement lasted for four weeks and I worked from Monday to Friday from 8:30AM to 5:30PM. On my first day I arrived at 10AM for my induction and was introduced by the manager of the setting to the other members of staff.

Research recognizes parent involvement as an important factor in the quality of a child's education. Joyce Epstein's School-Family-Community Partnership Model is an important model in research and practices surrounding parent involvement. As a framework for increasing parental participation in education, Epstein’s model recognizes six different types of involvement in regards to education. Through her work, Epstein encourages schools to develop activities that work within the six types, as well as instill these types in practices around the home.
All children have a personal plan and staff are becoming more confident using these due to support from management.
With PLEs coming to end we are going over compare and contrast as review for their upcoming paper they have to write. What Mrs. Detreick did was she put a vein diagram. Before we started to go into these we she explained what comparing and contrasting was and she said that when doing this you are taking two things and writing down information that is the same and information that is different. For the example she used mammals and reptiles. This was a good topic because students are interested in this topic. She had students raise their hand and they would put it either in the mammals sections, reptile section, and same. Students did a really good job with this, she then had them take the information on the board and had them write their own
Introduction- My case study is about Personal Social and Emotional Development (PSED) and the importance of it in the lives of children and the key role it plays as part of their growth and development. The child I am observing is a 3 years 8 months old girl called Emily. She lives at home with both of her parents and an older brother who is 10. Her father is Irish and works fulltime 5 days a week and her Mother is Spanish and works at the weekends. She has recently moved to the area at the start of the year and began preschool over the summer which she attends 5 days a week. The pre-school is an ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) community run pre-school in a quiet country side village within the grounds of a primary school. Emily is
My Early Childhood Education (ECE) institution is a Japanese Kindergarten. The main language of instruction is Japanese and the setting and culture of the kindergarten is predominantly Japanese. I teach English as a second language to children of age three to six. The kindergarten’s mission is to provide a holistic educational program for students and excellent opportunities for early childhood educators, providing the young children with knowledge and skills to make them independent and responsible. The kindergarten works closely with parents involving them in the success of their child. The vision of the institution is to be a leading bilingual (Japanese and English) education provider in Hong Kong.
As an apprentice working within a nursery profession, I have multiple responsibilities and duties that I need to carry out to ensure that the children I am working with are kept safe. Not only is it children I am in contact with I am communicating with other employees and parents of the children, therefore I have a duty to pass on relevant information. I work as part of a key worker team for the daily needs of children between the ages of birth to 5 years.
In this childcare service there are multiple children from different ethnic backgrounds for example there are children from African, Indian, Chinese and Polish backgrounds. They are learning most of their English language from the children in the service helping them out and asking them to play with them.
In some instance,s child care professionals may be the first to identify concerns about an aspect of a child’s health, development or wellbeing. When this occurs, teaching assistant should help child care professionals who should communicate honestly and sensitively with the child’s family about their concerns or observations and, if appropriate, provide the family with practical guidance about how they might contact other professionals for further support or
I observe a bilingual multicultural preschool classroom. My goal was to observe ten children during free choice play time, and to take observations based on play/non-play observations. In this preschool classroom the ages variation ranges between three though five years old. My host teacher. Ms. Rodrigues arrange the classroom setting too create a learning environment depending on the children interest following the creative curriculum. The teachers always accommodate the learning areas, for the students to make free choice, but the teachers also guide their young learners during play. On April 23, 2015 the observation took about one hour, upon my arrival children were finishing their breakfast, and choosing learning areas to play. In this classroom the teachers practice free choice, which provide students the opportunity to choose their learning area of interest. This is crucial in early child development setting because it provides students confidence about themselves, and encourage them to think to make decisions.
The parents or adults that are learning English as a second or other language may find that it is difficult communicating with their child's teachers. In addition, many Non-English parents experience low self-esteem, culture shock, and misunderstandings. Language difference can confuse parents about their role in education and how to help their children. Parents who do not speak English may not understand newsletters, handouts, or speakers at meetings, however non-English speaking parents wants their child to receive an education that will allow them to have a better future. Even when language differences take place, a teacher's willingness or attempt to speak the home language can deliver care for the parents because the willingness can encourage them to feel comfortable enough to speak in English plus can improve possibilities for communication. In order for the schools or nursery’s to reach beyond these barriers, there needs to be parental involvement applied in the education program. Parents may not speak the same language as the member of staff this can cause not much or no communication and can lead to frustration. This can be overcome by getting the parent to bring someone with them who can help them understand what has been said this may also have to be in written format but a lot of computers these days also have a translation setting of written

There are many activities and events available which enable parents to support their children and the school at which they attend. These range from in-school activities such as voluntary work, parents evenings and PTA’s to events based outside of the school such as fundraising events and bake sales. These activities all provide a certain level of support from parents and carers, either helping the school with areas such as staffing, or supporting their own child in their educational attainment.
