Unit 028 Develop Positive Relationships with Children, Young People and Others Involved in their Care Outcome 1 Be able to develop positive relationships with children and young people A/C 1- Explain why positive relationships with children and young people are important and how these are built and maintained. Positive relationships with children and young people are essential in any childcare setting. A positive relationship with a child means that they will feel welcome and a part of the environment and therefore they will settle and be content. A child will always play and learn better when they are comfortable in their surroundings. If you have a positive relationship with a child it becomes easier to communicate with them and understand their wants and needs.
Multi-disciplinary teams It is very important that everyone in a multi disciplinary team work in partnership. For the best results, all information must be available. This enables different disciplines to share their skills resulting in more effective support and outcomes for the child. Colleagues Working closely with colleagues and sharing information, such as observations, can add to a greater understanding of the child and their development. Working as a partnership helps to provide a good level
Philosophy Statement I love being a part of a child’s growth and development. I believe children learn best through spontaneous, meaningful, safe play. I believe it helps them to grow and develop in a positive way. I believe this type of play helps their social skills, their brain development and their self help, just to name a few. Play promotes curiosity, discovery, and problem solving, which helps develop a positive self image for the individual child.
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.
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 .
Expressing thoughts and ideas – in order to encourage children and young adults to talk about what they learned and what they think, or encourage them to express themselves imaginatively, communication skills are also needed. Effective communication is also needed when giving and receiving support. Very often children and young adults need reassurance and comforting, and it is very important how professionals use their communication skills to build child’s self- confidence. It is also important to reward child’s or young persons efforts by giving them time and
Good associations and strong collaborations between adults will encourage the good behaviour in children. At Clarice Cliff our main aim is to provide quality experiences in all aspects of school life thus enabling children to be happy, successful and keen to learn, helping them to grow into young people who are fulfilled and able to make a positive contribution to society. We aim to do this in the context of a warm and welcoming family ethos, encouraging an atmosphere of natural affection, a feeling of security and an ordered way of life. Our school is a place where success is celebrated and high self-esteem positively fostered. We believe that children should develop a happy way of being together, that their self-respect leads to a respect for the rights and needs of other children and adults; a respect which promotes equality and values the diverse local community.
We need to make sure that a range of play opportunities are provided to encourage this, and ensure that we provide materials that are stimulating and attractive, whilst encouraging children to make choices and to take responsibility for their play. Play is fundamental to children’s health, growth, development and over all well being. A child’s brain is stimulated when they play, especially when they have varied and interesting opportunities. Stimulation of the brain is vital for its growth. Play also provides good exercise for most
D. Identify the policy used in the setting to promote positive behaviour. The policy used in the setting to promote positive behaviour is praising and encouraging each individual child’s achievements. Children and young people come into the setting and as they grow up they develop emotionally, socially and intellectually. Some go through difficult stages and some experience more positive transition they use praise and encouragement as it is the best way to help towards children’s progression and behaviour. E. Describe at least three procedures your setting uses to promote positive behaviour.
We as Educators will protect and cherish the innocence of children and thus provide a safe and secure environment. As we unpack the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) we will work alongside your child to actively promote children's learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking
