Using these steps will produce a desirable outcome for everyone involved, as long as everyone continues to be dedicated and excited throughout the entire process.
SHC 32 Engage in personal development in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings Description of the duties and responsibilities of my work role (1.1) Working with children is very interesting and exciting because I learn from them as much as they learn from me. I always look forward going to the nursery and plan a fun and attractive activities for children, and than see how they have enjoyed the activity and what I can do next to improve it or better my practice. Planning these activities according to their age range gives me a good understanding on children’s developmental areas, in order to see their abilities and disability so that I can assess and observe further with the help of the room leader or supervisor.
