The importance of partnership with parents During the course of this essay I will discuss how parents’ involvement in my setting can be reflected into my workshop plan, and how this should include aspects of parental feedback on daily activities. I will also reflect on the how I engage with parents of children under my care as an early year’s practitioner in accordance with Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS, 2012). As an early year’s practitioner, I provide a welcoming and accepting environment for children and their families (DCSF, 2008) where the display of successful communication with parents is essential to further support the development of children. The importance of parental role in their child’s learning was recently highlighted by the department for education (2012a), which stated that ‘informing’, ‘reporting ’ and `discussing’ children’s progress with parents and the next step of their child development is of key importance in a child’s learning process. This point has been supported by evidence derived from numerous publications, which suggest that parents generally know their child the best, and are the main educator in the child’s life (Essa, 2007).

Unit 44 Task 3 prouduced by Adaugo Nwanemuogh P3 & P4 In this assignment I will be writing my reflective entries related to my own contributions to work in my placement. I will also present a portfolio of evidence in placement. I did my placement in an early year’s nursery, where I was assigned to work with the babies and sometimes the two year olds. It is such a heart- warming experience working with the babies because it gave me the opportunity to learn the ways they develop, giving it a good and careful observation. I made sure I record every new development which I have observed, using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) it helps me set standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth.

They must provide a wonderful learning environment for the children, teach them how to interact with others and help them with their daily needs.

CAREGIVING AND PLAY AS CURRICULUM Children learn with every breath they take. Each day brings with it a whole set of lessons, teaching young minds new concepts of this world. In this essay, I will discuss the definition of ‘curriculum’ in relation to infants and toddlers. I will also examine the concepts of care-giving and play as curriculum. In addition to that, I will briefly discuss the aspects of curriculum for infant and toddler development as stated in the Te Whaariki.
My philosophy on Early Childhood Education I believe as a teacher, I am responsible for providing young children with a positive learning experience. I strive to be a positive role model for the children left in my care, and in the community I serve. Children have the right to have their needs meet, to have a positive learning experience while in the care of their caregivers. Children learn what they live, and I have the opportunity while working with these children on a daily basis to teach them how to respect one another, by leading by example. You can teach them patients by showing them patients.
