SHC 32 Engage in personal development in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings Description of the duties and responsibilities of my work role (1.1) Working with children is very interesting and exciting because I learn from them as much as they learn from me. I always look forward going to the nursery and plan a fun and attractive activities for children, and than see how they have enjoyed the activity and what I can do next to improve it or better my practice. Planning these activities according to their age range gives me a good understanding on children’s developmental areas, in order to see their abilities and disability so that I can assess and observe further with the help of the room leader or supervisor. Therefore my duties and responsibilities are: * To contribute on planning of activities suitable to the age range of children with other staff. * Support all staff and engage in a good staff team * Being flexible working in the nursery and to help where needed, including working in different rooms e.g.
The constructivist approach to early childhood education offers children the opportunity to construct knowledge through daily experiences and encounters with parents, teachers, peers, events, and objects in the world. Children develop theories, negotiate learning, and merge thoughts together, thereby building knowledge and understanding. It is the right of all children to be part of a school community that respects them as competent individuals who are viewed as contributors to the process of learning. The educators of Reggio Emilia show us the possibilities of what can happen when we trust and respect the capabilities of children. We believe that the Reggio Approach is successful because of its powerful image and deep respect for the culture of childhood, and for its strong belief that children, teachers, and parents all work together in the process of building knowledge.
Much of her experience was not able to recounted, but this only shed light on how truly important and memorable the events were that she actually was able to remember. Vygotsky’s View of Cognitive Development applies to Louise’s life in a number of ways. Robert Feldman states, “Vygotsky saw children as apprentices, learning new cognitive strategies, and other skills from adult and peer mentors who not only present new ways of doing things, but also provide assistance, instruction, and motivation” (Feldman, 2010). Since Louise’s childcare was performed mainly by her own mother, she was always appropriately guided, and presented with beneficial learning experiences. Additionally, Louise regularly attended church from when she was an infant, so she was placed in a social environment involving peers and structure that positively impacted her cognitive development.

Great relationships between members of staff will positively influence our work with children/their parents and also will create a nice athmosphere and a great role modeling for them. Great relationships with parents are essential because it builds trust and reassurance, helps to share information. When child feels our love and support and has many frienships they just run in the door every morning and have a great time. This will hugely influence their development. Good relationships with everyone will help them to be open and ask for help whenever they need it, develop confidence and self-esteem.

Competency Goal Statement lll Goal: To support social and emotional development and to provide positive guidance To support social and emotional development and provide positive guidance, I supply all children with an emotionally and physically safe and secure environment in which they will thrive, being able to develop their own sense of self. I do this by smiling and greeting all children and their parents each and every morning. I always address each child by his or her name. I make sure every child gets some one on one attention when I can express appropriate physical touch and enjoyment in them being in my classroom. I get to know each child, establish relationships with parents, and support their strengths as well as their
I know she pays for this herself. This is a woman trying to make a difference. Ms. Barry believes school should be a sanctuary for children, I think she is right. For the less fortunate kids, the daily ritual of being in school, of having people acknowledge you, and of having a hot meal, may be the best experience they get each day. Every child at school is equal, no one knows if you are tucked into bed with hugs and kisses or if you fall asleep in front of a T.V alone.
English is her first and only language and she is confident within the nursery, spending a lot of time in the home corner and playing with the small world toys where she enjoys imaginative play.

She shows increasing independence when selecting and carrying out activities and is always interested and excited to learn.
Finally, during the preschool years, many children become quite independent and social interacting with the world around them through games and play activities. This is the stage of moving from minute activities to preparing for a solid foundation in all areas of development preparing to interact out of the home. Being a teacher in a classroom, I understand the significant impacts that play enhance preschool children’s growth and development through empowerment, self- help skills, and pro social behavior. As a center, we provide opportunities for preschoolers to exercise their ability to function in a school community efficiently and independently. This includes interacting both inside and outside with their peer and their teachers.
