I even cheer them on when they struggle with a task. To develop a sense of independence and pride, I let the children each day choose the classroom helpers. There are many tasks that the children are able to choose from. I structure the environment to offer opportunities for children to share information about themselves, their families, and experiences. I make it easier for the children to explore new experiences and the environments by making them feel assured of the support and availability of me, thus increasing his confidence.
Unit 002 1.1 - My current job role is as an 'Apprentice childcare worker'. My job purpose is to support the team leader and childcare staff to create a safe and stimulating childcare facility for children aged 0-12 years. To ensure appropriate activities are provided and support each child in reaching their full potential. My key responsibilities involve: * To assist and work closely with the children, other members of staff and parents. * To assist and implement and ensure that i follow agreed policies and procedures.
Building trust with parents or carers will result in them knowing that the nursery is a very good place for their child as it offers a great amount of help and support, which is especially important for new parents or carers. Other professionals It is also important to partner with other professionals as they will offer the support and services, where needed, to improve the overall development of the child. For example, a speech and language therapist may assist a child with communication difficulties. Another example would be a play therapist to diagnose, prevent or resolve a child with psychosocial challenges. Multi-disciplinary teams It is very important that everyone in a multi disciplinary team work in partnership.
This also includes comforting, welcoming, playing with, teaching, observing and protecting the children. I am also to assist with meeting the personal and emotional needs of individual children such as learning their likes, dislikes and interests, giving them help if needed and providing them with things they need such as giving them a drink. Another duty is to provide adult interaction with children in the nursery which we do when we play alongside them and join in if they want, commenting, sitting with them at meal times and carry out all aspects of the day with them. Finally, to be aware of the nurseries confidentiality policy which I have ready along with all the other policies and procedures of the nursery and have taken a successful test on. 1.2 Explain expectations about own work role as expressed in relevant standards Could not find info on national standards to answer question.
(EYFS) is followed and the nursery undertake to “Provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment....” for all children in its care.

Mandatory training covering any aspect of an employee’s role is to be provided by the employer. Some training such as ISA or Fire
Good communication skills are essential for childcare professionals, because they help them to develop relationships and demonstrate that they care. We communicate with parents, professionals and children. Ways in which we do this are:- • Daily Diaries – all children have a daily diary. Their key person will write in what the child has ate and drank, how long they have slept for, when their nappies have been changed or if they have had any accidents and what activities they have participated in throughout the day. The staff will also write in any messages for the parents, e.g.
I think for the younger children I will need to implement more colorful objects and thing for them to feel, touch and smell for recognition of the letters we are learning. The classroom setting was wonderful, having all the toys and books and games in the room made it easy for the children to participate in the activity. We planned this out a week in advanced and put together all the things that we were going to need for the activity. Some of the children were distracted easily so I helped them find the objects they were looking for. I think that next time we work on this I will use a helper to keep the children focused on the task at hand.
Explain Expectations About Own Work Role as Expressed in Relevant Standards 1-2 My expectations are to become a valuable nursery nurse, be reliable and build good relationships with children and parent carers, encouraging play whilst learning, and by having children’s best interests e.g. physical activities, encouraging climbing in a safe way, helping them to enjoy their growth in ability with lots of praise and assist in enhancing their development as a whole I hope I work as part of a team with other staff members and parent and carers in order to support the children to promote the children’s initial learning so that the children will feel confident and able to boost their self-esteem, to help them in their future, and prepare them for further education when they move onto school and into adult life. Supervising the children as this plays a big role in child protection Act and health and policy. Practitioners should always watch the children closely to prevent and reduce the severity of injury to children, as they often challenge their own abilities but are not always able to recognise the risks involved, so we need to watch children and identify any risks to minimise injury or accidents, we regularly dispose of toys that are broken, books that are torn or chewed and anything that is a danger to infants. KEEP - (the key elements of effective practice) ensure that we are all kept up to date with standards as they are reviewed on a regular basis.
