Introduction

I believe that I have been a positive role model for children in my placement as I always use my manners and I am polite towards the staff, parents/carers and children that bring them into the nursery. I make sure that I always welcome the children and adults into the nursery with a polite attitude, I also am always happy in the nursery so this makes the children feel happy and comfortable in their environment.

Conclusion

I always communicate with the children when they are playing in the setting in order to make them feel good about themselves, giving them a complement and valuing them makes them feel like they are important and that they have a say. I have a positive attitude towards work. If I get asked to do anything I always do it, and do not ask questions, when I am asked to tidy up the children see that listing to their teacher and doing what they say is polite and they then show that they are willing to do whatever they are asked to do. ?? ?? ?? ??
