Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with: Children Young people Adults Effective communication is fundamental in building positive relationships with all children, young people and adults. Children and young people acquire their communication skills by observing how adults interact with each other which will influence how they communicate and behave. Therefore, it is important for the Teaching Assistant, and other carers involved, to act as positive role models. Children and young people need to feel comfortable within their surroundings enabling them to separate more easily from their parents/carers. As they become more emotionally secure they are likely to become more actively involved with play or learning activities.
Practitioners need to praise children and encourage them to succeed in their learning and give them the support they need. Practitioners need to build positive relationship with not only their key children and other children in their setting but also with the children’s parents this gives them a better chance of giving children more support at home. See appendix 1. At the setting parents can get involved and this will benefit planning for the child as parents know their children better than anyone and they will know their likes and dislikes and will be able to help them with their development. See appendix 2 .
the result of this will be that other children will see this and will copy the staff members being respectful and, in turn, will respect their classmates, teachers and anyone outside of nursery. Providing interesting and stimulating activities within a child friendly environment is another policy this setting has. By carrying out this policy, staff are preventing children from becoming bored and irritable. Having activities for children to do will keep the children happy and enable positive behavior. Observing children closely and using the
TDA31 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults | | TDA31-1.1 Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. | | To have a positive relationship with children, young people and adults you will need to show them effective communication skills with you and other peers. How you approach people and how you respond to them should all come into account. You should always try to make children feel comfortable in your presence and try to put them at ease. To develop a positive relationship with a child can often take some time.
This make's the child very happy and like to continue or add more to what they have done. It also makes them feel good about themselves. Praises are very important when working with children because it also helps the develop their morals. Negative behaviour will be ignored as long as there is no health and safety risk. A tantrum will be ignored by the teachers but if a child is expressing negative behaviour such as hitting, they will then be told to stop in a firm voice (not shouting) Vygotsky - Adults should provide a play based curriculum and engage with children in play activities to extend their learning.
(Q1b) The policies and procedures that are in place to support children and young people make children feel safe at the school because they feel that are fully protected from any negative behaviour inflicted by other children. Children will perform better in their studies if they know there isn’t any obstacle in the way that can cause them stress and make them feel unhappy. Our school policy ensures that every child knows what is expecting of them and expects each child to make their own positive contribution to the school. This is achieved by making every child feel proud of the school they are in. Children’s behaviour at the school depends on each child’s attitude to each other and the school.
Play times are a common place where staff encourage young people to understand and respect other peoples feelings and points of view because it is often a place where incidents can occur between children, sometimes misunderstandings and fall-outs can take place where staff have to step in, listen to both sides, and encourage the students to come to a fair agreement, and to also help them understand wrong and right, and the effects they have on
Positive behaviour is strongly linked to respect for others and what is generally accepted as 'good' behaviour tends to be centred on this. Positive behaviour is about learning self-control and consideration for the needs of others. Children and young people will adopt the behaviour of the adults around them so setting a good example is the first thing all that adults should do when working with them. If children and young people are dealt with aggressively then they will respond in an aggressive manner (self-defence) so if adults always remember to be polite and say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ then they are more likely to copy. If we encourage and
This can support the children's thinking and extend their learning. Practtitoners withing the setting role play how to be creative with divergent thinking. Model being creative, for example. Childen within the setting understand they have freedom to access all resources, but have also developed an understanding that it is important to put equipment back back where it belongs. (Montessori) within practice it is vital to practitoners to gain an understanding of how they support the childrens creativity and crititcal thinking, so often record how practitoners interact with children and then reflect upon it for future development and
It enables children to interact and participate in a variety of projects to encourage creativity and independence. This is a good strategy as it encourages children to construct their knowledge through the relationships they build with others and the surrounding environment. ‘’It is an approach where the expressive arts play a central role in learning and where a unique reciprocal learning relationship exists between practitioner and child’’. www.educationscotland.gov.uk/ (21/11/13). It is an important aspect to carry out when allowing children to play, as it encourages children to be independent learners, and allows them to understand and learn about life and the world.
