D1 Describe the purpose of one setting that is statutory provision for each age range.

There are many settings which provide care for children. One statutory setting which provides care for children from the age of 3 to 5 would be a nursery for example Our lady of Peace Nursery.  ‘’They exist because there is a law that states that all children should be educated’’ (Tassoni 2007 pg3) and will have to follow the government or local authority to have them open. The purpose of this setting is to give children registered care facilities which offer full time and part time care for the children and provides pre-school education experiences such as constructive activities, etc... As well as an opportunity to socialize with their classmates by having the 15 hours a week of education which is delivered by the early year’s foundation for 36 weeks a year.

The aim of this setting is for parents, other family members and anyone else who may care for the child to meet other adults and talk. It is also a time where the children going with them can socialize with other children, their age by many different activities.

The other setting would be dance classes for children between 5 and 7 years, for example Great Early Childhood Dance classes. It would normally cost for the child to join and parents or guardians of the child tend to pay for the child joining. It is run after school or during the child’s free time.  They aim to give children dance lessons which will teach those dances e.g.: Ballet, Jazz, free-style and many more by a qualified teacher. Those lessons should encourage the child to develop the self-confidents through the music and movement and give the children, the ...

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

This is a good, clear piece of work. It addresses the subtitles and remains on focus. The writer has tried to use examples from their setting to extend the work. It could be enhanced by trying to include a little more explanation. The writer is presenting good descriptions but is not always reaching an explanation. Extending the writing would address this. ****
