Communication is what we say and how we say it. Looks (frowns-smiles), actions (hugs-punches), with silence (warm/cold), as well as with words being (kind-unkind). Good communication involves paying attention to all types of expressions. I feel it’s very important to have effective communication skills, when working with children because they learn by how they live. I feel myself that becoming a Nursery worker good communication skills are needed in order to bring out the best of my ability. This insists of sending out clear and positive messages, giving others my full attention. I believe it’s important to create conversation with staff members/ mangers, parents and children, by interacting with them, children learn how to communicate, by talking to us, looking at us and copying our every move, what our actions are like around others, the volume of our voice, our hand gestures and facial expressions. The more I’ve study childcare and looked at communication and barriers affecting it, I’ve noticed communication is the building block of all relationships not just with children but everybody around us. A major starting point can sometimes start though play with some children, it’s their first time being in a group of children and surrounded by lots of toys, they begin to play with 1 toy, then start to look around and see what others are playing with, then explore and maybe begin communicating with other children, but if not then defiantly, facial expression, body language and eye-contact will be noticeable. It’s through expressing themselves that children reveal their thoughts, feeling and begins to connect with others.
