Currently studying Diploma Children's Services
I believe that I will offer high quality child care that gives children many varieties of activities and experiences within a safe and nurturing environment. Each individual child?s needs will be met, not only physically but emotionally. I will allow children to be involved in all decision making, guiding them to make the right decisions.
Within my home I encourage healthy play and development, not only through safe play, but nutrition and hygiene. Nutritious food and healthy choices is what I believe makes children able to grow, learn and develop properly not only as a child but all through life. Creating an extensive understanding of good hygiene as children will enable the child to have this as a life style and skill. This will be shown by instructions clearly shown near the hand basin where the children will wash their hands before & after eating, playing and using the bathroom.
I believe in positive behaviour management, I praise a child after they accomplish something or make a ?right? decision, and show a minor reaction to a ?bad? choice. Growing up within a large family, extended family and foster children, I believe I have extensive experience and knowledge with children. This allows me to know the importance of equality between children. All children need to be treated the same regardless of their individual circumstances. Every child should be able to come into my care feeling happy, safe and secure.
Creating a sense of security comes from having a routine. I will follow my routine that I set, but will allow it to be flexible for unforeseen circumstances.
