There are different types of childcare options available for 0-5 year olds, these include:Sure Start - Giving every child the best possible start in life is an initiative called Sure Start which is government led. They offer a broad range of services focusing on Family Health, Early Years Care and Education and Improved Well Being Programmes to children aged 4 and under. Sure Start makes contact with parents as soon as possible in the child's life and can offer support to families who have developmental concerns or other worries about their child. They can also give them support in making referrals for other services.

The basic way of treating someone with respect is to ensure that their interest and welfare is at the forefront of all dealings and interactions with them. I have had a chance of working with children and young people with their families as a trainee teacher. I ensured that I understood what children wanted by asking their opinions and also giving them choices whenever possible. In communicating with the children and their families, I ensured I used their preferred names and gave them opportunities to raise issues of concern and ask questions. I gave the families a chance to give input on the child’s development plans and how well they felt the child’s welfare could be improved.
Involving young people in planning and reflecting on their own learning through assessment, evaluation and personal learning planning is essential and this is the responsibility of all practitioners regardless of the learning setting. Universal support will help young people to identify and plan opportunities for achievement through activities covering a full range of contexts and settings, whilst meeting individual needs and providing effective learning activities that address barriers across the curriculum in every context and setting. Additional Support Some young people will benefit from additional or targeted support, tailored to their individual circumstances. This could be at any point of their learning journey or, for some, throughout the journey. 1.2 explain the role of practitioners in providing impartial information and advice to children and young people 1 Young people are informed about how information, advice and guidance services can help them and how to access the services they need.
What is happening in the child’s environment. It also includes whether the child has any additional needs or which children/people are around the child as the child may act differently around different groups of friends and different members of staff. To assess young children in a setting you follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) the EYFS give guidelines as to what a child should achieve at what age or stage. To find out what stage a child is achieving members of staff, especially the key person, perform observations and record these. These observations should cover all areas which are Physical development, Communication and language, Literacy, Personal, social and education, Maths, Art and design and Understanding the world.

Effective communication is also important so that information given is clear, concise, accurate, and informative.
This could be related to learning or a disability. A SENCO will assess children and if necessary develop an Individual Education Plan (IEP), that will give everyone targets to work to for the best outcome for the child. These targets are regularly reviewed and updated, to see that progress is achieved. The SENCO will support both children and parents, involving both to ensure that the child is supported in the best possible way. Teachers The teacher is responsible for teaching the children with guidelines
From birth to 19 years, children grow continually. The sequence in which all children and young people follow will be similar as they will have to develop one skill to move onto the next, however the rate of development will vary. The development can be measured through social and emotional, physical, intellectual, and language milestones to ensure that each individual child is developing on target. Social and emotional development covers aspects of relationships to self-confidence. To ensure a child’s social development is on target, praise, guidance, support and encouragement are key when helping them interact with others around them.
TDA 2.3 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults In my assessment I will be looking at communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults in schools as well as identifying and describing the key points linked to this topic. 1.1 Describe how to establish respectful, professional relationships with children and young people When building relationships with children and young people, it is vital that you adapt your behaviour and communication accordingly. You need to be able to make yourself approachable, as some children can find it difficult to connect with adults. This is why demonstrating effective communication skill can be just as important as offering support. Establishing ground rules and mutual respect at the start of any relationship when working with children is vital, this will be the foundation to successfully interacting with all children regard less of their age, culture and abilities.
