Introduction

Explain the role of the early year's practitioner in supporting children's moral and spiritual development. Early year Practitioners must make sure that they are keeping each individual safe so that they don't victimise any child in the setting regarding there religion or beliefs or any other structure in their life such as culture as this will destroy the child self-esteem or they to lose their beliefs. At placement each practitioner values each child to making sure that that they are not picking on any child because of their religion or beliefs. Practitioners must make sure that they include all children to the activities making sure that the children are in a divers atmosphere at all times so the children will be able to follow their beliefs.

see it must talk to the child immediately and let them know that the thing it is doing is wrong explaining in detail for the child to understand. This way children learn from their mistakes what they did was wrong, by punishing the child for instance putting the child on out time will persuade them not to do it again. Practitioners make sure that the children visit religious places such as Church or Mosque as this will also make the children aware of religions and where the followers go to practice their beliefs. At placement there are also many visits to religious places In my work placement there has been no visit to Churches and mosques as the practitioners believe that the children will have a better knowledge of the particular religion if the have a visit to or any other religious places and would be better if they do as children would be more developed with knowledge. ...read more.

Conclusion

In an early years setting, Religious Studies would teach children about spirituality and morality. Religious Studies gives a child a better understanding of who they are, giving the child a sense of security and confidence. For instance, what clothes they want to wear or what they look for in a friend. Teaching religious Studies is important in supporting a child's moral and spiritual development as it reduces stereotypes and labelling by teaching them about other cultures and religions, challenging discrimination. It also helps them understand their feelings and helps them to recognise the feelings and achievements of others. Spiritual and moral development encourages good relationships, co-operation, empathy and self-awareness. It helps children develop self-discipline and helps them understand the consequences of their actions. As well as helping the children develop their own views and thoughts. Early years practitioner must make sure they are behave morally correct for the children to follow your example as children imitate and learn behaviour from others who are significant to them. ?? ?? ?? ??

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay


This piece of work aimed to look at the role of the Early Years practitioner in supporting moral development in young children. It doesn't quite achieve this for several reasons. Firstly, the writer appears to suggest things that would not usually occur in an EY settings, eg. trips to a place of worship and studying Religious Studies. Therefore accurate knowledge of EY is not evidenced.

There are frequent grammar errors in the work which makes much of it difficult to read.

There is no link to the EYFS curriculum and how this may help with supporting moral development.
