She developed on Bowlby’s IWM theory by looking at the individual differences on types of attachments that may be formed to the primary care-giver. Ainsworth looked at children’s behaviour during separation from their mothers, beginning in Uganda and a later study in the US Ainsworth developed the strange situation experiment as a standard test to measure attachment in children (Oates, 2005). From her results she discovered three main times of attachment. Secure, insecure (split into sub-categories) and absent (Oates, 2005). The way in which the child behaves during the strange situation is determined by the behaviour the care giver presents to the child.
They tend to break up repeatedly with the same person, often get emotional and angry. We learn to trust and rely on others as an infant and that influences our relationship as adults. If parents of children this and traded children accordingly we may have adults who grow up to have healthy happy relationships. A child's early caregiver experiences are crucial in setting the stage for that child's ability to maintain intimate relationships in adulthood. A child needs consistent, nurturing caregiving in order to develop a secure base, in which the child feels that it is safe and protected in the world.
At settings, the key person will have warm and affectionate bond with babies and children but they do not replace the parents and if the key person has a long term illness so two people will care for a child in the setting. The Early Years Foundation stage states that all settings must put the key person approach into practice. The key person system is someone who has a child assigned to them and has more contact than other staff members and has a relationship with the child and parents and also cater to the child’s needs by changing their nappies and answers to their needs and emotions. (3.2) Explain how babies and children learn and develop best from a basis of loving, secure relationships with carers and with key person in work settings The significance of warming and secure relationships – babies and children start to understand and make sense of the world around them by using their cry so that the parent or carer can quickly respond to their needs and also have a loving and secure relationship with the baby. These relationships are vital as in setting and home and babies that do not have a loving and
Discuss implications of research into attachments and day care practises (12 marks) Psychological research has helped to improve the advice given about the quality of day cares and what sort of day cares parents should leave their children with. The aim is to encourage children to socialise confidently without their parents by forming attachments to their caregivers and to minimise the negative impact of separation on attachment. One of these recommendations is to offer parenting classes to some parents who struggle with raising young children and need support and guidance on how to develop attachments with them. UK Government services such as ‘Sure Start’ centres now offer courses on parenting skill in order to aim to give every child the best start in life. Another recommendation is to avoid separating a child from its caregivers; many hospitals provide a bed for parents whose child has been hospitalised, to avoid the damage to attachments caused by separation.

He argues that the process occurs during a sensitive period between the ages of 6 months and 5 years where the child develops an internal working model of themselves. It is believed that the child develops an understanding of themselves from the relationship they have with their primary caregiver. If it is a positive relationship they will have a positive self-image. It is also believed that if a child does not develop a positive relationship within the sensitive period they will continue to have problems with future relationships when they grow up. Support for this can be found when Hodge and Tizard found that children who were in care and were unable to form attachments had difficulty in forming relationships throughout their childhood and into adulthood.
