3.1 Explain how to monitor children and young people’s development using different methods. It is important to monitor a child’s development to make sure that any necessary assessments can be arranged to help and support them. It is crucial to identify any children who may be at risk, moreover to prevent those who are not yet at risk becoming at risk.

Reed and Brown (2000) proposed that it might be difficult to define play as it is ‘felt’ rather than ‘done’. Ramsay (1998, p. 23) defines play as a ‘vehicle for children to explore their differences and develop common themes that incorporate elements from many life experiences’. This definition provides a good insight into the concept of play however it does not encompass all types of play such as solitary play. Smidt (2011) articulates that through play children attempt to set and solve problems, explore and experience their interests and concerns and express and communicate their feelings within a context. This definition places the child at the centre of the activity and highlights the usefulness of play.

You should always have the child’s safety and welfare uppermost in your mind when planning. • The desired outcomes for the children and young people are the starting point. Most activities with children and young people should have clear aims and objectives that are based around the required outcomes linked to their age: for example the EYFS for children under the age of 5. • Lines of responsibility and accountability: everyone employed in a setting has a responsibility for the health and safety of children and staff, but there should be clear reporting responsibilities.

In my setting the policies and procedures for safeguarding are always put into place. We ensure children are safe when they are in the setting and if we were to have any suspicion of abuse at home we would deal with that so they were always safe in their home environment. We help children succeed by doing our best in educating them. 1.2 Explain child protection within the wider concept of safeguarding children and young people All those working with children have a responsibility to safeguard
Early childhood educators need to learn to watch and listen to a child long enough to determine a what a child's goals should be and as an educator understand the child's individual needs to develop strategies for attaining those goals.

Unit 027 Support Children and Young People’s Health and Safety Outcome 1 Understand how to plan and provide environments and services that support children and young people’s health and safety. Learning Outcome 1 There are a number of important factors to take into account when planning for healthy and safe environments whilst setting up activities and services with children and young people. It is necessary in planning activities to remember each individual’s needs and abilities and that all children need supervision at all time. Everyday I have to take into account the different children I have in my group and that each child has a different level of ability and needs compared to others so when I am setting up activities I need to ensure that each child will be able to take part and enjoy the activity as well as learn at the same time. Activities that I would have to put a lot of through into would be a physical exercise because this activity could be difficult for a child who has just learnt to walk.
