Mu 2.8 contribute tithe support of the positive environments for children and young people 3.1 explain how effectively care for childrens and young peoples skin hair and teeth. It's part of children's learning about self care and personal hygiene. We can help them do this by encouraging to wash hands before and after eating, after using the toilet and washing their faces with individual flannels. It's also important to teach them the difference between hot and cold water such as red means hit and blue means cold on taps to prevent them burning themselves whilst at the same never leaving a child unattended with water. Babies are different from children they need their nappies changed regularly to prevent any sores or infections and moisturising the skin well.
Once everyone was ready, we served dessert, which worked as above in terms of self-service, extra helpings and cleaning away. Once a child had finished, they were permitted to play in the room, under instruction not to disturb those still eating. Throughout they were taught the importance of hygiene, starting by washing their hands before the meal and continuing by teaching them not to play with food or eat anything they dropped on the floor. Teaching good hygiene at nursery is important because it influences the how children approach personal hygiene, which will stay with them for life. Teaching the principles of good hygiene is the best way to avoid the spread of infection and other complaints, both in childhood and later in life.
2 Be able to support individuals to maintain personal hygiene Describe how to maintain dignity of an individual when supporting intimate personal hygiene When supporting an individual with intimate personal hygiene it is important to explain to the individual what is going to happen and ensuring that they understand what is going to happen and that they are comfortable with what is going to happen. Take care to ensure that you have everything you both need for the task to hand to save interruptions causing distress. Lastly shut the door and curtains to ensure total privacy ensure the areas that are not being washed are covered to save embarrassment. Listen to the individual throughout ensuring that they are OK and making sure they don't feel uncomfortable. Identify risks to own health in supporting individuals with personal hygiene routines When supporting others with personal hygiene it is important to wear personal protective
For example, a learning environment could be; classroom, science lab, art studio, playground or sports field. An important factor to remember when planning an activity, inside or outside, is that all children and young people should be given equal opportunities. All children, including those with special needs, need to be considered when planning the learning environment. This means the environment may have to be adapted to meet specific needs. Four factors that need to be considered when planning a safe learning environment are: Cleanliness – whilst outdoors it is important to ensure that the learning environment is hygienic to use, ensuring the area is clean, free of litter, animal excretion, etc.
1.2 Explain how duty of care contributes to the safeguarding or protection of individuals Risk Assessment By ensuring risk assessments are been carried out within a setting before each session. Make sure all equipment and toys are safe and the equipment is age appropriate for the children in care. Assessing the setting and making sure there are no potential hazards like hazard materials being left out or electrical sockets being left uncovered. Ensuring the setting is clean to stop the spread of infection. That food is stored properly to stop cross-infection and the kitchen is always clean to stop the spread of bacteria and germs.
Cleaning schedules are in place to prevent and control infections. The environment should be visibly clean and acceptable to residents, staff and visitors. Regular cleaning is important to maintain the appearance and function of the premises, the chosen method of cleaning should remove the contamination and not spread it. Cleaning schedules are put in place to inform users, staff and visitors who cleaned, what is cleaned, what time and day cleaning takes place, whether something needs to be cleaned daily, weekly or monthly and what chemicals were used to clean. 3.
Unit 4227 - 024 - 4.1 Explain how own practice can affect children and young people's development. Explain three ways in which your own working practice can positively affect the development of children and young people: 1) By having and showing good hygiene practices. Encourage them to wash hands, flush toilets, blow their nose. Try to ensure they do not chew class pencils used by everyone (also explain why) and chewing their clothes. Always lead by example from an early age and then children will continue to have good hygiene throughout their lives.
It is important for any child in your care to be looked after in a secure, friendly manner, all children should be protected against harm whether it is accidental or whether they are at risk from others (staff or other children). Parents need to trust the people that are looking after their children. We have policies and procedures to adhere to. There are three main policies regarding this and they are Child protection (keeping children safe from others or parents/carers), Risk assessments (to minimise the risk) and health and safety (washing their hands after toileting and before snack). All staff are CRB checked, first aid trained, attend child protection courses etc.
It is important for all staff to read all policies and procedures. As a practitioner you should be aware of nutrition needs and plan healthy meals/snacks for children and on some occasions give advice to parents. You should be aware of portion sizes, this is important because children can still become overweight on healthy foods if they are given too much. Assessment 2 When reporting any type of concerns we always go to our policies and procedures first and then go to the relevant person within the setting, which is either the manager or deputy manager. If the concern was about the manager then staff would have to report the concern to our committee members Child Protection Officer – Manger Health & Safety Officer – Manager Fire Safety Officer – Deputy Manager Safeguarding Officer – Manager First Aider – Manager, Deputy Manger Assessment 3 3a When receiving children into our setting, two members of staff go and collect all infant children from Reception to Year 2 from their classrooms and all junior children Year 3 to Year 6 make their own way to the Scout Hut which is on the school premises.
3.4: Promote children and young people’s positive behaviour. 1.2 Evaluate how the policies and procedures of the setting support children and young people to: * Feel safe- A school should ensure that every child attending the school feels safe. Policies like Safeguarding children ensure that the right procedures are in place to protect children. All staff working within the school should be trained on the correct procedures for safeguarding children. Anti-bullying policies are in place in school to ensure the children know that bullying is not acceptable behaviour but a child should feel confident enough to report an incident if one occurs and should know who they can go to within the school to discuss any such situations.
