Describe the factors to take into account when planning healthy and safe indoor and outdoor environments and services There are many factors with regards to health and safety that need to be taken into consideration when planning activities. It is important to always make sure that the environment that the activity is going to be carried out is free from hazards that could affect the health and safety of the children, staff, volunteers or visitors. There is a duty of care to provide a safe and secure learning environment for all children and young people ensuring that their needs and comforts are met, regardless of age and ability. When planning activities for indoor learning there should be enough room for children to move freely around the learning environment and they should be able to access resources safely without risk to themselves or others. There should always be sufficient light to enable the children to work in comfort, consideration does need to be given to the length of time overhead lights are used as they can be harsh and cause discomfort after prolonged periods.
I also watch for signs of emotional or developmental problems in children and write anything that concerns me about the child/ children, then I bring the issues to the attention of centre's coordinator or supervisor to inform parents/ guardians. I always listen carefully to children and this helps me determine a child's needs and aids in promoting the child's development. Inclusive childcare is very important whether or not children experience disabilities or other special needs. Every single day at the setting, I make sure all children fee a sense of belonging. I let children participate in the same routines and play experiences, this way I learn to recognize children as distinct individuals with special strengths and needs.
