Hi, page 205 of Collins Level 3 handbook
CYP 3.3 unit
The role of the practitioner is able to support the development of children's self confidence, self esteem and resilience in a variety of ways.
- Provide consistent boundaries so that children know what is expected of them.
- Use praise and encouragement to support individual efforts and celebrate achievements.
- Recognise the importance of each step a child takes towards indepences and celebrate that accomplishment.
- Include children in decision making and ensure choices are provided so children take control.
- Listen and respect children, showing genuine interest
- Respond to children with warmth, patience and genuine interest.
- Respect their right to have their own opinions.
- Provide opportunities for children to achieve and do things they feel proud of.
By working in partnership with parents and carers you're able to share these examples in differing ways to support children in both their environments - at home and in the setting.
- Daily events
- Time to chat
- Display boards in waiting areas
- Positve, supportive, respectful attitudes and approach to partnerships
- Involving parents in assessments / observing their children and sharing information that enables a setting to plan for children's interests - feedback, meetings, news from home, culture, traditions.
- Introduce and expand on concepts with parents about children eg. transitions, attachment, expected behaviour, development patterns, schema, well-being, choices and decision making - rule setting, healthy food choices, personal hygiene eg. hand washing, teeth cleaning, night wear and day wear
