Childcare. Different Settings for Childcare and Keeping Information Confidential.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

D1 Describe the purpose of one setting that is statutory provision for each age range. There are many settings which provide care for children. One statutory setting which provides care for children from the age of 3 to 5 would be a nursery for example Our lady of Peace Nursery. ''They exist because there is a law that states that all children should be educated'' (Tassoni 2007 pg3) and will have to follow the government or local authority to have them open. The purpose of this setting is to give children registered care facilities which offer full time and part time care for the children and provides pre-school education experiences such as constructive activities, etc... As well as an opportunity to socialize with their classmates by having the 15 hours a week of education which is delivered by the early year's foundation for 36 weeks a year. Another example of a statutory setting for children aged between 5 & 7 is a primary school such as Claycots primary school. The children are either in Year 1 or year2 and require knowledge, understanding and skills for subjects that must be studied and they would be art and design, English, Math, geography, music, physical education (P.E) ...read more.

During the pre-visit I would make sure I know what to wear and the time I need to arrive, understand the risks and hazards at the placement and make sure that I am aware of the rules and polices of the setting. Remember to check which jobs you may not be allowed to do legally because you are under the age of 18. Then on my first day I will be showing the positive attitude because I will be looking smart and the people in my working environment would have seen me engaging by preparing beforehand. D6 Give two different ways in which you can show that you understand the importance of valuing each child as an individual It is important to value every child as an individual and one way to show that you understand this would be to make sure that each child gets the help required for them for example if a child needs more help, he/she will get the attention required and is not left behind. Another way to understand the value of each child as an individual could be listening to the children's opinions and views. ...read more.

Conclusion

This will help me to study successfully because I would go home and re-write my notes into a shorter form with colours or use spider diagrams and then any of this information would be easily to use and asses because I would know where I keep my learning resources and better uses in my study. (Tassoni 2007 pg 22) ''While you might recognize you prefer to take information using one learning style above, you might also discover that you use all three depending on the learning situation.'' I can then do this in practice at work placement as I would be applying it to everyday activities which I carry out with the children. An activity which can be done to show this is making cards with many different colours. It is showing my visual side because I am doing similar stuff which I do in my studies.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a good, clear piece of work. It addresses the subtitles and remains on focus. The writer has tried to use examples from their setting to extend the work.

It could be enhanced by trying to include a little more explanation. The writer is presenting good descriptions but is not always reaching an explanation. Extending the writing would address this.
