Awareness of children?s development D2 A non-judgemental approach to practise- this means to make a conscious effort not to be critical of the actions or thoughts of others. It is important to keep a non-judgemental approach because you will be working with children; it?s not good to judge others in front of children because they may copy your behaviour. It is not good to judge children either; this can cause them to be upset and self conscious of them selves. Time keeping and attendance- Timekeeping and attendance is extremely important in an Early Years setting, for both the children and the members of, many people rely on you to be carrying out your responsibility- this includes the team, the parents and the children.

A* Communication skills are some of the most important skills that you need to succeed in the workplace. We talk to people face to face, and we listen when people talk to us. Furthermore, by continuing to learn, I can re-awaken part of myself and reconnect with the world that the children?s inhabit. I can rediscover the frustrations of not being able to understand fundamental concepts or master essential skills, and I can again experience the joy of success and the fear of failure. I can remind myself of the value of the great teacher and of great teaching. I can experience firsthand the hurdles we place in front of those who wish so much to learn. ...read more.
