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 .
Children depend on adults (who also are as healthy as possible) to make healthy choices for them and to teach them to make healthy choices for themselves. Teaching: Children benefit most when their teachers have high levels of formal education and specialized early childhood professional preparation. Families: Young children’s learning and development are integrally connected to their families. Consequently, to support and promote children’s optimal learning and development, programs need to recognize the primacy of children’s families, establish relationships with families based on mutual trust and respect, support and involve families in their children’s educational growth, and invite families to fully participate in the program. Community: As part of the fabric of children’s communities, an effective program establishes and maintains reciprocal relationships with agencies and institutions that can support it in achieving its goals for the curriculum, health promotion, children’s transitions, inclusion, and diversity.
I think that home visits with children and their families, supports literacy learning in the classroom and strengthens school/home partnerships. You really learn so much just from doing one home visit with a child. You not only learn things about children that you never would have known but you also learn their families and what they believe in. You get to see where the child comes from; and by knowing things like this, it can help you understand the child in the classroom more. You can also see if the children have any books at home.
These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The professionals teaching and supporting your child will make sure that the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs. This is a little bit like a curriculum in primary and secondary schools, but it's suitable for very young children, and it's designed to be really flexible so that staff can follow your child's unique needs and interests. Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside. The diagram below gives examples of the areas of learning and development and shows the links between the way in which your child learns and what they learn.
The culturally responsive classroom “specifically acknowledges the presence of culturally diverse students and the need for these students to find connections among themselves and with the subject matter and the tasks the teacher asks them to perform” by using instructional strategies which, place students into “cooperative learning groups, [an environment wherein] culturally familiar speech and events [are discussed], [and] wait time for students from CLD backgrounds [is] adjusted to enhance classroom participation and development of critical thinking skills.” (Brown, p.60,
There are several relationships that matter here: Parent- teacher, parent- child, teacher- child. They all should be equally yoked and the parent should realize that each of these relationships will be beneficial to their child. “ Several Studies show that when parents are positively involved in their child’s education that they achieve higher grade, test scores, perform better in school, and actually attend school” (Children, 2008). The children are more excited about learning and education because their parents show an interest in it. In the teacher- child relationship, the teacher can build the relationship by utilizing active listening skills, making direct eye contact, engaging in one on one and face to face interactions with the child.
Parents / carers have a right to know how their children are managing in school and indeed the sharing of information means that parents / carers can follow the same processes at home should they choose to. Parents / carers are far more involved in the setting now. They may spend time in the setting, share ideas and most importantly, share information about their child with the practitioners. This is especially important in the case of children with Special Needs so that therapies, methods of calming etc can be passed on to the
E1: There are many parts to the role of the practitioner when they are meeting children’s learning needs some of these are working with families, providing a positive environment, and the children wellbeing. Working with families”, you should always make sure that you are approachable and friendly towards all parents so that they are happy about leaving their child with you” (Tassoni, 1999, pg. 315). This helps to meet children’s learning needs as the child’s primary career has a better understanding of the child and may be able to support the child when they are at home. I have seen this at placement where they run parent consolation’s twice a term, and if the teacher needs to see the primary career, they arrange meeting.
These systems include; microsystem, ecosystem, ecosystem and macro system. Each of the systems has rules and norms that govern it enhance facilitating individual development. For instance; ecosystem can help in boosting children performance in school in which he or she interacts with his parents at home in which they can aid them in revision. It is an aspect that should be considered important in each and every family context because children need to be assisted in their studies more so in doing their homework (Jarvis & Chandler, 2001). If parents take much time at work for example the time spent by Chris in Iraq, their children may end up being poor performers in school which will impact negatively on their lives in the future.
Parents should communicate to manage their child’s academic success. Volunteering and learning at home requires a parent to help the student with homework and other educational activities. Decision making type of involvement is communicating with the student to discuss improvement and student success. Collaborating with the community help influence more families to become involved in their children’s education. All six types of involvement positively impacts educational
