Evaluation Of How A Nursery Can Meet A Child's PIES

Extracts from this document...


Transfer-Encoding: chunked ´╗┐Evaluation I feel like I was successfully able to meet my objectives and aims with high standards. My aim was to investigate how Alperton nursery meets the PIES needs of children. How the nursery follow up on development, how the children performance and how the nursery can keep children safe from harm. I used a textbook to gather secondary research in order for me to have a clear understanding of my aim. I?ve accomplished my objectives by gathering information through primary research and secondary research. I made an appointment and visited Alperton Nursery with a list of interview questions for the staff, parents and the enthusiastic children. I interviewed a wide range proportion of parents, staff and children in order to get a clear perspective from each individual. However, I came across an ethical issue which was to get informed consent from parents of the children attending the nursery in order for me to interview them. I would have to get informed consent from participants as part of the ethical research process. Informed consent is important in tackling ethical issues when conducting a research. When I was interviewing Alperton Nursery staff, I decided that it would be better for me to interview the staff by myself rather than having somebody with me. ...read more.


I would have more responses from parents and children with a partner due to the fact that we could cross pathways and ask directly as much parents and children we could. Salma and I scheduled a meeting to visit Alperton Nursery just before the parents picked up their children in order for us to ask them directly for consent to ask a few questions before they leave. We went to the nursery and we were successful in getting over fifteen responses from parents and eight responses from the children. I?ve decided to ask the children questions that was unstructured because unstructured interviews are best suited to children feeling comfortable and less pressured. The children would have speech impediment and feel uncomfortable due to their less amount of vocabulary, so in order for them to response efficiently they?ll need questions that would best suit their capability of understanding. When asking the parents questions, Salma and I had to structure are questions because the parents were in a rush to go home and rest after a busy day at work. This resulted in us limiting our questions to six quick and simple questions. Salma and I were able to collect useful information to use through recording parents and children because writing the response would be time consuming. ...read more.


It bought a smile to my face when the children pointed out what hand print belonged to them because they were enthusiastic and overwhelmed about their art work. The drawing also indicating that the nursery is meeting the children intellectual and physical needs because the children are using their touch and smell senses with the paint. Their able to feel the sticky substances and smell the powerful smell that comes from the paint. They?re learning how to use paint and the purposes of paper and paint. Alperton Nursery is outstanding nursery to visit. The checklist was helpful in indicating to me what particular task I have finished and the ones have not completed efficiently. This was a guide for me to use because I was able to tick and cross my tasks depending on if I finished or if there incomplete. The checklist allowed me to structure my work efficiently, so I was able to pin-point-out any missing information to help me succeed my objectives and aims. It was beneficial for me to have a checklist because I was able to refer back to it. During my research I used a references, these were; GCSE Health and Social Care Mark Walsh textbook, my teachers notes and useful websites that enabled me to get information on Alperton Nursery and the PIES of children. ...read more.
