CYP Core 3.2: Promote Child and Young person development 4.1 As a child care practitioner, the care and education that I extend to children, can make a difference to their overall development. In short how working practices are delivered in my setting can affect children development.

Practitioners need to praise children and encourage them to succeed in their learning and give them the support they need.

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 .

These strategies include circle time, pastrol support and nurture groups where children are encouraged to talk about their feelings in a safe environment. We also have an extensive enrichment program that allows children to gain new experiences thus building their self esteem.

The objectives and strategies of Counselling in schools have been lucidly spelt out. INTRODUCTION Basic Concept 'Counselling' Counselling is a process through which an individual who needs help is assisted by a professionally prepared individual so that he can be helped to make necessary adjustments to life, and to his environment.

Adults have got to take children seriously, listen to them, make them feel that they are important, encourage children to try things out for themselves (you start with young children, by being close by, so they know there is an adult there if they need them - this often gives them more confidence to try things).
