By having regular contact with the parent, staff can arrange meetings with the parent to discuss the Child's progression and how they can improve working conditions with the child. In addition to this the staff will also have a clearer understanding of the Childs background, what the child requires and how the child learns best. This is because the guardian has a better understanding of their Childs behavior as they had the most involvement in the Childs early development. Furthermore, this relationship also indicates how the child may be treated at home in case there are any hints of abuse which can be dealt with quickly. In addition to these issues, this parent/career relationship is also important in times of need, for instance, if a child has experienced a death of a loved one, if their father or mother has died.
Between 2 and 3 years, the confidence of the child will increase resulting in them playing happily alongside other children adults. However, they become more impulsive and demanding, prone to temper tantrums when demands aren’t met instantly. Between 3 and 4 years, their independence develops more and more and they are more comfortable in unfamiliar places and with unfamiliar people. They become more sociable, playing with others, sharing during games, and showing concern and comfort for those around them. Between 4 and 7 years, they are more interactive with other children but still struggle with rules in games and fairness.

With the help of some the nurse and doctor thru proper communication we get information about the child health conditions.
Age Characteristics Up to 9 months By nine months babies are still shy with strangers but will show their affection to carers. They will enjoy being with others and playing simple games like peek-a-boo. 1 – 2 years At this age children may show separation anxiety from adults close to them. They may choose a particular object such as a teddy or blanket to comfort them and play becomes more fun with other children and they will mostly be cooperative. Children can now be easily distracted to avoid unwanted behaviour.
Reflective account of the role of the practitioner in caring for children The practitioner in caring for children should always know what their role is and know to put the children first. The practitioner has to know what they are looking for when employing new members of staff. This is shown in my job descriptions. New employees should have experience in working with children before they are given the job. This experience could be from a college course, apprenticeship or volunteering work.
• To exchange information – For example, a patient visiting their GP will supply the doctor with information about their symptoms. They will in turn receive information that will enable them to understand more about their medical problem. • To negotiate and liaise with others – An Early Years setting manager will liaise with other professionals, parent groups and committees to discuss policies and procedures. • To express needs and feelings – Children and young people should be given opportunities to express themselves freely, confident that adults will acknowledge them and meet their needs. Communication is also needed to build relationships in the first burst of communication we are building a new relationship even by just saying ‘hi’.
To develop to their fullest potential, children need a huge amount of support and guidance from others in their lives; failure to meet all of the needs of a baby or child can have serious consequences on his or her development. A child’s development in the first few years of life is rapid, with milestones being close together; this rate of development slows as the baby grows to a young child and then a young adult. In the first year of a child’s life, health professionals will monitor the rate of development to ensure they are meeting ‘milestones’, are healthy, and are progressing normally. These ‘milestones’ provide a guide to the progression of an ‘average’ child, but are used only as a rough guide, although a significant delay in reaching one of more of them may point to a problem which needs to be addressed.

Basic stimulation techniques and stable, predictable nurturance are necessary during these periods to enable optimal cognitive, language, and personal socialization skills. Because these children have suffered significant emotional stress during critical periods of early brain development and personality formation, the support they require is reparative as well as preventive. The pediatrician, with knowledge of the child's medical and family history, may assist the social service and judicial systems in determining the best setting to help the child feel safe and
As a key person I have key children who I monitor day to day. As I do this, I like to meet regally with their parents to update their progress and development. I also believe sharing information with my room manager is very important because, If I am absent from work one day and one of my key children are in, there may be a chance she doesn’t know certain needs that require for the child. I also think when talking to a child I would speak in a calm and kind manner, to encourage the child’s self-confidence and to help them behave sensibly. It will help build a relationship with the child and for them to be able to trust me and become more openly about any problems they may have.
Middle Childhood and Adolescence PSY 280 Sunday, October 29, 2012 Middle childhood and adolescence is a crucial period of development within everyone’s lifetime, but for the child and parent it can become a time of uncertainty. In this era of a child life, their brains are developed enough to for logic, so they attempt to understand the world around them with answers from their perspective.
