I gave the families a chance to give input on the child’s development plans and how well they felt the child’s welfare could be improved. During meetings with the families I gave the child the opportunity to introduce self and the family. I also gave the child the opportunity to participate in discussing and making choices about their own learning outcomes. 1.1.B.

Explain the importance of multi-agency and integrated working. How does this create a better outcome for children, young people and their families? Multi-agency working is different services, agencies, teams of professionals and other practitioners working together to provide the services that meet the needs of children, their parents or carers. These can include health visitors, educational psychologists, colleagues from other early year settings, social workers and parents or carers. Integrated Working is when all these professionals supporting children work together effectively to put the child at the centre, meet their needs and improve their lives all under one roof.
Education (schools) and childcare (nurseries) is mostly the concern of the local education authority.

Nurseries help young children to develop their gross motor skills through play and teach them to interact with other children.
Since, I have been thinking of different ways of creating environments, seeing children’s strengths, abilities, and communicating with families during this class, I am going to briefly discuss two things I plan to implant in my professional experience. First, I would have a discussion with my supervisor and staff to come together to help enforce more universal design learning our facility. UDL is As I read the statement in “Early Childhood Inclusion: A Summary”, I came up with the conclusion of what the creation of a sense of belonging and membership, positive relationships and reaching full potential means when working with all young children and families. First, I would make sure that my classroom environment accommodates all my students and the parents feel comfortable with their child in the environment also. Throughout my teaching career and working with all children and families I have discovered that the best
In early years practice it is important that colleagues work together effectively. By referring to practice and theory discuss how this can be achieved. This assignment aims to give the reader insight into the importance of colleagues working together effectively in Early Years settings. There will be a discussion about how this can be achieved referring to practice as well as theory. Diverse groups of individuals can work well together, forming a strong team and how communication amongst professionals when forming a multi-disciplinary team ensures that the best care and development is available for the children involved.

Principles • The welfare of the child is paramount. • Foster carers contribute to children’s care, learning, development and safeguarding.

This document designed for program trainers, directors and parent educators to use as they work with caregivers and parents to insure quality care for infants and toddlers. Infants and toddlers are cared for in a variety of settings. These settings include the child’s own home, child care centers and family child care.

These individuals pool knowledge, experience and commitment to design an educational program that will help the student be involved in, and progress in, the general curriculum. The IEP guides the delivery of special education supports and services for the student with a disability. Without a doubt, writing--and implementing--an effective IEP requires teamwork. 6.
Starting to teach kids early about responsibilities, create structure and routine that is consistently reinforced, will help children to grow the habits of becoming more responsible. A primary concept in family systems theory is that the family includes interconnected members, and each member influences the others in predictable and recurring ways (Van Velsor & Cox, 2000). Having open communication within family members and not being isolated is a key tool to maintaining a functional family. Sculpting is a good tool to identify a family’s system dynamics by asking family members to physically position themselves and other family members into a formation that metaphorically represents the family
