PRESENTED BY MONICA BELALCAZAR CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUPPORT OF POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE MU 2.8 1.1WHAT IS A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT ? The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) states: ‘ A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.’ It is important for a child care practitioner to understand how every aspect of a child or young person’s environment can have an impact on their lives. A positive environment helps children and young people to become independent, and to have the confidence to learn new skills and gain a sense of belonging. Whatever age group or setting a childcare practitioner must plan an environment that encourages the development of the whole child.
Multi-agency working brings together practitioners from different sectors and professions, such as the individual’s school teachers, social worker and GP. They aim to provide an integrated way of working to support children, young people and families. It is a way of working that ensures children and young people who need additional support have exactly the right professionals in place to support them.

TDA 3.1 Communication and professional relationships with children, young adults and adults. 1.1 Effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults as it increases and maintains the positive attitude with all involved. When we first meet someone, whether it be a hello, wave or smile, communication has started and we have already begun to build a relationship. Positive communication is important in all aspects of life and if it isn’t grasped at an early age then it could lead to various difficulties in terms of interacting with other people. Communication is vital in building that positive relationship needed for trust and respect, something that is very much needed when working with children, young adults and their parents.
This can lead to the child gaining the ability to communicate with others. They may be able to learn sign language or develop the use of PECS to a better degree that will enable them to get their needs met more effectively. In the longer term this can reduce anxiety levels and behaviours because they are able to make themselves understood more easily. It is also important for me to have a good relationship with other people too. We all have the child’s best interests at heart and want to do our best to give that child the best opportunities available to them.

Effective communication helps children and young people develop confidence, feelings of self-worth and positive relationships with others. It also helps them grow into adults who have positive feelings about themselves and others.
