Unit 3 Question 2 E5: Describe TWO (2) strategies which the setting may use to empower children to develop independence and self-reliance The importance of children’s communication skills In terms of empowering children, communications skills are critical. Being able to communicate helps children express their needs and feelings and make friendships with other children. Some children who experience difficulties in managing their behaviour are likely to have difficulties communicating. This means that helping children gain communication skills should be a major focus of your work with them. Communication skills used by children helps children to express their feelings, manage their anger, helps to negotiate with others, helps to understand the feelings of others, and also helps children respond appropriately to others.
It also allows the practitioner to establish what a child’s skills are and where they are currently working at. “When children play, they show their skills and competencies.” (Pound. L, 2009, pg.13). Through using Tina Bruce’s theory of children being independent learners; practitioners can observe children while they are playing, thus using this information to plan adaptable activities that reflect the level that each child is currently working at. For example, if a child has been playing with the puzzles and the
To successfully fur fill the requirements I as the adult will have to provide and make resources accessible so that I can interact with the children and observe and reflect on each of the child’s learning experiences. By doing this I will be able to see what the children enjoy doing and how I can keep the child’s attention and concentration. To use the child centred approach you will have to look at every child as an individual with different strengths learning styles and interests as well as adapting to children who have learning difficulties or disabilities, to achieve this I will have to research their
In other words, pedagogical documentation is about documenting the children’s learning processes as well as encouraging the thoughts, interpretations and reflections of children, teachers, families and the wider community (Moran, Desrochers & Cavicchi, 2007). This happens through displaying content such as written notes, transcripts of children’s discussions, children’s works, photographs and videos, and encouraging stakeholders to take part into the process of revisiting, interpreting, discussing on and reflecting on the content (McDonald, 2006). Pedagogical documentation allows children’s learning to be visible. It also allows stakeholders to collaborate with each others, understand and learn about different views on children’s and teacher’s learning whilst becoming more involved into their learning (Moran, Desrochers &

Reflect on the importance of a child centered approach in early years settings. “The Child Centered Approach promotes the right of the child to choose, make connections and communicate. It allows freedom for children to think, experience, explore, question and search for answers. It presents a creative celebration of children's work.” (1) The child centred approach in early year’s settings allows schools to be fitted to the needs of the child instead of the child to the school, focusing on the needs and interests of every child. “All practice with children needs to be centred upon the needs and interests of each child” (2) As every child is a unique having the child centered approach in early year’s settings is important because it will help children reach their full potential.

Good working relationships will enable staff to rely on each other to pull together and help the nursery reach its highest potential. K3C155 – The relevant legal requirements which cover the way I relate to and interact with children include The Children’s Act 2004. This act was designed with guiding principles in mind for the care and support of children. These are: • To allow children to be healthy • Allow children to remain safe in their environments • Help children to enjoy life • Assist children in their quest to succeed • Help make a positive contribution to the lives of children • Help achieve economic stability for our children’s futures.
Different approaches, manners and stratagems are applied in order to ensure that people are not secluded or excluded. One must be aware of each individual different needs and sustaining the wellbeing and confidence in their talent. One must ensure the achievement and full potential in the community. Inclusion in early years is important because it promotes a culture of equality, opportunity and high accomplishment for all children. This promotes community, consistency and amalgamation through understanding and respecting others.
