Unit 1 Assignment
E1:
The main three different types of settings which are provided with care and education for all children in my area are, firstly the statutory area would be…., because it is funded by the government, so they didn’t want to play for their children to go to a private school. Secondly the voluntary sector in my area are mainly activities like sports/ football teams and playschools and afterschool clubs where you donate money but none of the staff get paid any money because they volunteered to help run and work for it. Finally, there can be very few private schools in my area because people disagree to pay for their child’s education instead of it being funded by the government and so there aren’t many private schools in my area but one near my area ….. is the main private school which a lot of people know around by my area.

The way in which the types of setting from E1 has aims to support children and their families are; Statutory settings can help families is they can’t afford much so this way the government is funding for them so their children can still go to school with no big price to get the child’s education complete for their stages. On the other hand private settings are the opposite where the families pay for their children to get their education, and they are not funded by the government, the children are paid to go to private schools so they can get a better education. And voluntary settings are helping by getting everyone involved and by raising money for schools or other charities. E3:

Positive relationships describe that every child can learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and a key person. Enabling environment describes how the environment can play a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning. Learning and development describes that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, all areas of learning and development and equally important and inter-connected. The values that underpin working with children are most importantly putting the children first by ensuring the child’s welfare and safety to keep them safe from any harm as possible, showing compassion and sensitivity so this way they may respect you and treat you fairly. Respecting the child as an individual, meaning to treat them each the way they would want to be treated and respect each of the children’s different needs upholding the child’s rights and dignity, enabling the child to achieve their full learning potential. Also never use physical punishment, this is because as an early years practitioner the only way to punish the child civilly is to get down to their height and make eye contact and tell them off gently when you a TA as an early years practitioner. Another big one is to respect the parent, or those in a...
