Statutory Provision for child care and education. Working with professionals and child centred learning.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Unit 1: E1 (E2) Statutory section In my area there is a primary school, Aiskew Leeming bar Primary, and this school is a statutory school. Statutory is free education, funded by the government. Parliament elects a Secretary of state for education. The aim is to educate all children to their full potential. School hours are between the hours of 8:45am to 3:30pm, but different schools are varied. All children follow EYFS and the National Curriculum. In school they have Key Stages which are split up by ages. School provide lunch, recourses and school transport. In June 2005 the government launched the extended school. Access to opportunities and resources for all, this is to provide high quality wraparound child care provided by the school available from 8am to 6pm. This includes varied activities, homework clubs, access to ICT and sports. 'These are services that by law have to be provided for children and families.' Tassoni.P, Child Care and Education Level 3, 2007, page 331, Having full day hours can support families by having some where safe for children to go so parents can go to work and know their children are safe and doing something productive. Having after school clubs is good for children to get extra curriculum. Private section In the area I live there is a Private nursery, Bedale Day Nursery. Private Provisions are run to make a profit. The Profits can be put back into the business or shred between the shareholders, or the individuals who own and control the business. Private Nurseries are open 5 days a week and only close for Bank holidays. The hour's open of the nurseries is from 7am to 6pm. In the nurseries they follow the EYFS. All staff are qualified. The nurseries are also inspected from Ofsted. In private day nurseries they care for children from the ages of new born to 4 years before they go into primary schools. ...read more.

Make a time plan with your supervisors for when to sign of paper work. Knowing your preferred learning style Knowing your preferred learning style will help you leaner much easier. There are three types of learners there are visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Visual learners learn best from watching how an activity is played out or looking at the information with images and techniques. Auditory learner is where the learner has to listen to what is being said for them to understand what they must do. Kinesthetic learner is where the learner actually carries out the physical activity rather than listening or watching. With these learning styles the auditory is the best way of learning for in college as you can listen to the teacher. Then visual and Kinesthetic are the best for when in placement as you can watch the other practitioners in the placement and you are actually doing the activities/work with the children in placement. D1 Why it's important to work with parents. Having a parent - teacher relationship will benefit the child. When parents work with the child's teacher they make a supportive team and help the child do the best of their abilities. Parents have the most understanding of their child's development at home and teachers have more understanding of the child's development when at school. So teachers and parents need to come together to tell each other of the developments and what they need to do to at home and school to help the child with any problems. Teachers need to have a good relationship with parents to know what the child likes or dislikes or any allergies. Teachers can tell the parents what the children have been learning so then the parents can somehow extend the learning at home, example is that if the children are learning about money at school the teacher can tell the parents this and the parents can continue this learning at home or talk about the money when going to the shops. ...read more.

Conclusion

That the children are being independent there is more planning to be done so there is something for all the children. And it may be costly as more resources will be needed and you might need more staff. If planning wasn't child centre then another way is adult led planning, this is where the activities are led by an adult. Positive side of this is that having someone lead or teach you pass they can pass on the information easier. Adult led lets the adult observe the children more and see their development. There are some negative points on this as well. Children can become to dependant on the adults and not try or want to learn or do things for themselves. The adult doesn't look at each individual child; they just look at the children as a whole group and doesn't teach the child to their level. Reggio Emilia is a programme of early childhood education. The name is from a town in the hills of northern Italy were the programme was developed. This was developed in 1945 after the Second World War. The schools were originally funded by parents, then in 1946 Loris Malaguzzi a primary school teachers who also studied psychology, became involved with setting up pre-schools organised and run by parents in Reggio Emilia. 'His traveling exhibition The Hundred Languages of Children (originally entitled If the Eye Jumps Over the Wall) was instrumental in bringing his educational philosophy to a wider audience of teachers and parents worldwide. Opening with the words 'Il bambino e fatto di cento' (literally, 'The child is made of a hundred'), Malaguzzi's manifesto goes on to say: 'The child has a hundred languages (and then a hundred hundred hundred more) but they steal ninety-nine. The school and the culture separate the head from the body. They tell the child to think without their hands, to do and make without their head, to listen and not to speak, to understand without joy, to feel love and awe only at Easter and Christmas. They tell the child to discover the world that is already there.'' http://education.stateuniversity.com/pages/3176/Loris-Malaguzzi. ...read more.
