Practitioners have established that the mandatory welfare necessities are important for the early year’s basic safety, security and health.

Each principle of the EYFS has four obligations which show practitioners which are putting the principle into practice, therefore supporting children in meeting the outcomes set out in the government’s programme for children, Every Child Matters which also supports the holistic development (Hughes and Doherty, 2009).

Richard D. Lavoie defines fairness in the classroom as everyone gets what he or she needs (Beyond, 2005).
Disabled children have the same rights as any other child to feel safe and be protected from harm. According to ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ “Safeguards for disabled children are essentially the same as for non-disabled children. Particular attention should be paid to promoting high standards of practice and a high level of awareness of the risks of harm, and strengthening the capacity of children and families to help themselves.” Disabled children are increasingly vulnerable to abuse and neglect which is why attention should be paid to their well-being. The guidance ‘Safeguarding disabled children – Practice Guidance’ gives professionals advice on the indicators of abuse or neglect. According to ‘Safeguarding disabled children – Practice Guidance’, indicators that a disabled child is being neglected or abused can be, “A bruise in a site that might not be of concern on an ambulant child, such as the shin, might be of concern on a non-mobile child, Not getting enough help with feeding leading to malnourishment, Poor toileting arrangement or Lack of stimulation” The guidance ‘Safeguarding disabled children – Practice Guidance’ is effective as it gives EYPs a view on how to safeguard children with additional needs as they are at an increased risk of neglect and abuse due to their vulnerability.

An easier way to become a Child Care Center Administrator is if you become recognized by the Certified Childcare Professional (CCP) that is offered by the National Early Childhood Program. There are many programs out there that are nationally recognized to work with children. With being recognized through these programs, it helps you and your program to be better known by those who want their children in the best possible care. Many states have their own requirements of licensing when it comes to childcare centers. A huge part of the licensing program is to have background checks and to teach the future staff CPR or what to do in case of emergencies.
‘Literature Opens Doors for All Children’, is an article written by Donna L. Miller and Phi Delta Kappan. They demonstrate literature may hold one of the keys to helping children build their language and communication skills as well as help the child with autism and those without it to develop social connections with each other. When childhood disorders are frequently discussed whether on media or public, many authors have responded with stories told through the perspective of characters who are differently able and use it as teaching materials to public about all the children should be accepted and equal, no matter who you are. From one of the references uses in the content, Sharon Andrew, an author who says that, “inclusion literature, a powerful tool for helping students without disabilities develop an awareness of and tolerance for those with disabilities” (Miller 17). These perspectives broaden horizons for all readers and help create more environments and health realted place where all children are accepted.

Also the practitioner would need to work in partnership with the parents at all times because the parents are the most important people in the child’s life and the parents of the children know their child better than you do. Also in a setting I attended before the practitioner and the mother of a chid liaised in order to put a sticker chart with rewards to help improve the child’s behaviour. The idea of the sticker chart came from B.F. Skinners theory which was positive and negative reinforcement: if children were rewarded for good behaviour then the behaviour is likely to continue. (Bruce T, Meggitt C, 2007). Communication would also be essential while planning for the children because if the child is involved with any other professional then the educational and milestone developments must be communicated between multi-agencies to ensure that everyone is aware of the stage the child is at in his/her learning.
