Demonstrate understanding of how to interact and communicate with adults in a childcare setting.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Demonstrate understanding of how to interact and communicate with adults. When approaching adults certain things need to be taken into consideration such as giving your full attention when an adult is speaking, eye contact, responding in the appropriate manner and in general showing respect to that adult. These all are needed to show you understand and to become aware of what is being said to you if it is an important issue. Also this improves communication skills when talking to adults as in the future these skills will be put to test and certain things will reply on them. There was many different staff that all had different roles amongst the nursery where I did my placement. Communication varied amongst different members of staff depending on what their role was. However the pressure eased a little as I soon found out there were other members of staff working there just like as they were college students who were doing NVQ's so therefore this gave me the ability to start speaking to them informally as I would with any other friend I would usually talk to. ...read more.

Middle

After the firs week I got used to talking formally with my supervisor who was the deputy manager and this made it easier for me to talk to her about certain things and also she didn't mind when I began talking a little informally to her as well. Talking to the children is completely different to whilst I was talking to the staff as many things change. When talking to an adult I would usually talk using long words which would be hard for the children to understand and function and I would take to them both formally and informally depends on who the member of staff was. When talking to children at the nursery hand gestures had to be used so children understand and take in what is being said to them, also I would have to get down to their level so they would participate more and this made them listen to myself and other staff when myself and other staff did not get down to the child's height when talking to them they would run riot as the child thought that it was not important to listen to what was being said. ...read more.

Conclusion

As the days progressed on children began talking to their parents about me saying how I would give them praise and how I would always play with them so therefore this lead to more parents talking to me and asking things such as how their child had done on that certain day and what target would be set for the next day, as the trust began to settle with myself and the parents, they began to trust me with things such as confidential information, for example if a parent wanted to tell me something confidential I would have said to them in a nice manner to take it up with the deputy manager who was mostly in charge of important information. I would have said this tot the parents because if any information leaked I would have not wanted to be blamed for something which I did not do and also as I was on work placement for just two weeks it did not concern me and what had to be done next with that certain child. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

A well thought through essay. The writer has looked at their placement and discussed the different adults that they have come into contact. It could be enhanced by adding a little about confidentiality procedures that are in place with regards to parents.
