´╗┐Resubmission Unit 5 Unit 5 E1 The practitioners responsibility in a professional relationship is that they should be able to work as part of a team and provide a high quality care and education for children, you would do this by following legislations. By following all your settings principles, policies and procedures you would be promoting and encouraging the children's safety. You as a practitioner would always maintain a high level of safety by following the settings policies and procedures and be being aware of any emergency procedures. Also if you belive a child is being harmed you should always report it as the child may be being abused etc . "Policies in early years' settings are there to guide the actions which practitioners need to take to fulfil the vision and aims of the setting and to act as a point of reference against which decisions can be made." Early Years Update. Also for practitioners to be in proffessional relationship they should be able to keep confidentiality, effective communication and professionalism. The reason a practitioner should keep confidentiality about the children in the group or the parents, is because each child is different with different needs. If the practitioner went around talking about children to other parents, they would tell other parents that ,for example : her daughter cant do that while mine could do it a year ago. This would make the parents judgemental about other children and upset the parent of the child. You do not? share information with any other people other then care staff, unless there is an emergancy where medical practitioners may need to access the information.? When talking to a parent you should exchange information in an appropriate area,so in a spare room this is to keep confidentiality and if any information is given ensure that the information is kept out of view from other parents.? Tassoni 2007 pg 219 When communicating with parents, staff and visitors ensure that you are ?honest, specific, keeping parents informed ...read more.


The disadvantage about the free nursery education is that some parents are getting their ap plication denied unless they pay top-up fees for extra hours and also some nurseries , PAC chairwoman Margaret Hodge said: "High-quality early years education can have lasting benefits for children and results at age five have improved. We are concerned that some providers may be excluding families which do not pay for additional hours?. This affects parents as they would think that they would be getting the free entitlement but settings would be charging extra. She added: "It is unacceptable for any parent to be charged for what should be a free entitlement. It is also completely unacceptable that some parents cannot access the free education unless they agree to pay 'top-up' fees for more hours?. The government is now tracking down the nurseries as everyone is eligible to free places. E7.Free places are also only available during term-time, and only for 15 hours a week. In addition, many childcare providers sometimes feel that government funding for the free places is insufficient, placing restrictions on their earnings potential and their ability to B1.provide the best care. This is because now many nurseries face paying for free places as the funding is unsuffient. So nurseries are not able to buy any equiptment for the nursery because there is less funding and some nurseries are paying for the free places, the staff cannot pay practitioners, afford to hire anyone etc. I believe even with the disadvantages, the free nursery education does support work in the early years as they give children an early education which supports them in later life. It also supports parents who don?t have a lot of money, it allows their child to have an education, no matter what their financial status is. The free nursery education are also provided through a partnership between the government, local education, authorities and the private and voluntary sectors. ...read more.


By providing a safe environment that allows appropriate risks and challenges i.e., climbing frames. The children would take safe risks but always be supervisied and do risk assessment, they would also follow health and safety rules. The sixth value is ?The Self-esteem, resilience and a positive self-image? is recognized as essential to every child?s development. The setting would have to make sure they would observe each individual child to helping with their development. The practitioner would also need to promote the understanding and value of self-worthy within the setting by encouraging interaction and individuality to aid the child or young person to grow emotionally and socially. The seventh value is ?Confidentiality and agreements about confidential information are respected as appropriate unless a child?s protection and well-being are at stake? The setting would have to make sure the confidentiality of information is always safe and secure and only shared amongst the staff and no one else unless disclosure is required by law or in the best intrest in the child. As a pratactioner, you're required to maintain private information, such as health records, nutritional restrictions, contact information and, in some cases, developmental progress reports and parent logs. Child Care Aware points out that a confidentiality policy plays an important role in parent/provider communication, providing assurance that private information stays private. The final value is ?best practice requires reflection and a continuous search for improvement?. The practitioner should always keep an open mind always looking to see how you can improve something or develop it. By reflecting on how enthusiastic, positive and optimistic you are and how you demonstrate this in your work from day to day. For example, you would think about how you treat colleagues, how well you listen to them and to what extent you are prepared to help out if needed or you would also consider the way to talk to children and how good you are at listening to what they have to say and following up on their idea etc. By doing this you would be reflecting on your self and be improving your setting. ...read more.
