Maintaining a relationship with someone is very important also as it keeps you in contact with others. It keeps you in touch with the feelings and needs of others, which is essential in any functional relationship. This is very important when working with children as you need to be informed as to their needs, in order to have a happy work environment. Again, I believe this leads back to the issue of trust. If children can approach you with a problem (without hesitation) then I would class this as a good relationship.
Effective preschool classrooms are places where children feel well cared for and safe. They are places where children are valued as individuals and where their needs for attention, approval, and affection are supported. They are also places where children can be helped to acquire a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills needed for school success. Research shows beyond question that it is through having many opportunities to talk as well as to listen to teachers and peers that children gain language skills so valuable for their success in reading and writing. The more children know about their world, the easier it is for them to read and learn when they get to school.
A child's language development can be affected by the home environment, but also by childcare facilities, the community and the social interactions that they have within these environments. Home Environment Safety and comfort are crucial to learning; therefore a safe and nurturing environment is conducive to language development. The home needs to be a place where the child can open up and grow. A balance of individual time, parent involvement and group activities with other children are also needed. Parents who get involved and play interactive games with their children see much better results.

L.O 1.2 – Explain the importance of positive relationships for development and wellbeing Positive relationships are important as they will help children feel more secure and happy in the setting. If the child feels secure they are less likely to have any separation anxiety and more likely to get involved in play and other activities which will help their overall development. A child who has positive relationships is more likely to talk more and develop their language skills. They will also be less likely to show unwanted behaviour because the carer will be able to recognise their needs and meet them.
In order for FCP to be effective, professional familiarization with the family setting and activities is significant. It is important to note that the professional may not provide effective assistance without developing a partnership with the family. A good understanding of the family ensures a smooth transition of experiences between a home and early childhood settings. Above all, emphasis on family strengths promotes dignity and strength and ensures continued concentration on positive outcomes in early childhood development. Implications of FCP on ECP Cohrssen, Church, & Tayler (2010) subscribe to the idea that parent involvement in child education has direct links to improved
Anne-Marie Whitlock MU 2.9 1.1 Explain why working in partnership with others is important for children and young people?

We can put their photo with their names under it, so that they can learn how are their name written and encourage them to do it themselves. On the outdoor they
With positive behaviour around, children find it much easier what is expected of them. Starting from a young age having boundaries with children is crucial so as they grow they will know what behaviour is acceptable and what behaviour isn't. They need consistency so that way staff have to work close with partent/carers to let them know what boundaries we have in our settings and try and get the partents to use our techniques at home so the children dont get confussed. Children need a lot of consistency in their lifes to help them know what is good behaviour. This also helps children take responsibility for their actions and also they are part of the process.
Communication is an essential skill for worker who wants to do well in their setting; this communication can be between adults or children. 1.2 Explain how effective communication affects all aspects of own work.
