Smile Values and principles of the childcare learning and development sector

The principles and values for underpinning work with children and the protection and promotion of children’s rights are as follows.

Principles and values essential for working with children and young people
Source: Pg 16 CWDC induction standard workbook


1. The welfare of the child is paramount.

2. Practitioners contribute to children’s care, learning and development and this is reflected in every aspect of practice and service provision.

3. Practitioners work with parents and families who are partners in the care, learning and development of their children and are the child’s first and most enduring educators.


1. The needs, rights and views of the child are at the centre of all practice and provision.

2. Individuality, difference and diversity are valued and celebrated.

3. Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice are actively promoted.

4. Children’s health and well-being are actively promoted.

5. Children’s personal and physical safety is safeguarded, whilst allowing for risk and challenge as appropriate to the capabilities of the child.

6. Self-esteem, resilience and a positive self-image are recognised as essential to every child’s development.

7. Confidentiality and agreements about confidential information are respected as appropriate unless a child’s protection and well-being are at stake.

8. Professional knowledge, skills and values are shared appropriately in order to enrich the experience of children more widely.

9. Best practice requires reflection and a continuous search for improvement.

Principles and values

Principles and values are an important basis of practice, but will only have an impact on children and families if they are interpreted in the reality of everyday work. The principles and values stated below underpin the whole set of standards, including those that have been imported from other sectors. These principles and values are firmly embedded throughout
the standards, as are concepts of children's rights and the importance of listening to the voice of the child.
