Competency Statement V
TO ENSURE A WELL RUN ,PURPOSEFUL PROGRAM THAT IS RESPONSIVE TO PARTICIPANTS NEEDS.
On my class every morning, we welcome the kids. I start a short convesation to se how they are feeling ,if they are sick ,or is someting is going on at home. Teachers ask questions like : How is your morning today? Do you walk, get the bus or you ride a car to school? You look petty today! You have a big smile today! They anwer whith a long conversation while they wash their hands. During breakfast I see if the are coughing ,red eyes or something i dont see the day before. When i see a bruise i ask ,what happen?how did you do it ? does it hurts ? And thats how i began my observation of the day .

HOW TO USE INFORMATION FROM MY OBSERVATION TO COLLECT MY RESOURCES.. I chose a child ,look at the needs that he had base on the obsevations taken. Teachers files the observtions and make note of every thing they can use for they resource ,they share with parents on parents conferences so they can help at home too. WHY OBSERVATIONS AND DOCUMENTATIONS ARE IMPORTANT.. They are important because this include medical records,contacts,and basic needs of the child, keeps up-to-date records (such as attendance, accidents/incidents reports,child health and emergency forms,etc) as required by regulations or policies, sharing informations with parents, specialist and other center personel,only when appropiated. HOW TO ENSURE YOU ARE OBJECTIVELY OBSERVING AND TRACKING CHILD'S DEVELOPMENT AND LEARNING PROGRESS. When you start to see that the help you give to the children is helping them to grow.you see a big difference betweenbefore and after you made the observation. That's why is very important to make observations and documentations for every child in your classroom.By doing those two thing you know you are tracking and observing accurately, to meet a good learning progress.

    Responsive to participant needs. On their first day in our program, I make every effort to me4et and greet our clients, the parents as well as the children. I ask the parents if they need any special requirements, accommodations, or modifications to better service their children. Before the child enters the classroom, I make sure they know they are included. I post a welcome sign for each new child and their cubby is already labeled so they know where to store their belongings. Once the child has entered the classroom, I take another child and introduce them and then we all take a tour of the classroom. This gives us a time to get to know each other, I can find out their likes and dislikes, observe their interactions with other children, and begin to plan their development.…

    When assessing a child you must be careful to take into account confidentiality before carrying out an observation you must have parents and the settings permission and not to leave confidential material lying around they must be secured in a locked cabinet. Only talk to authorized personal about confidential material. This confidentially can only be broken when a child is at real risk. When carrying out observations you must take account of the child’s wishes and feelings if a child is upset or wants you to stop then you must stop. Ethnic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds when we asses a child we must take account of their ethnic, cultural and linguistic back ground as these can play important roles in how the children acts and the understanding of the words being used. Disability or specific requirements need to be taken in account when carrying out any assessment /observation or a child can be underestimated and the observation will be unreliable. Reliability of information no one can get an accurate picture of development if the information is not accurate this can harm the child’s development and the underestimating of their potential. With observation we must understand the limitations of each type of observation method. Avoiding bias when observing children we must remain completely objective also having 2 people observing the child at the same time can produce a more accurate account. The best way to avoid a bias objection is to use a mix of methods such as a sticky note to write down the observation and a tick list…

    1.1. When assessing development some factors need to be taken into account one of these is confidentiality, this means that you will need permission from a child’s parents/carers before doing observations, also when information is wrote down about a child is important that it is kept in a safe place were only the relevant people can access it. Also making sure that information about a child is only shared with parents/carers or colleagues and professionals that have the right to know. Another factor to take into account is a child’s wishes and feelings, this means to take into account the child’s wishes when doing an observation or assessment. The child may not want to be assessed at that moment in time it is important that the child feels happy with been observed. Also think about how you write about a child make sure it is respectful towards the child. Also when assessing development Ethnic, linguistic and cultural background needs to be taken into account as a child’s behaviour, development and skills can sometimes depend on their culture, ethnic and linguistic background. A child’s linguistic background is very important as the child may not understand what the task is as the words used are unfamiliar to that child. When assessing a child it is also important to take into account their ability and if they have any specific requirements, Some children may have a disability like dyslexia or may have a physical disability like need a wheel chair, this should be taken into account as a child may need extra time to achieve their goals or may need a one to one with a practitioner in order for their development to progress. Another important thing to take into account when assessing a child is the information you have and making sure it is reliable. This is very important because if information is incorrect it can harm a child’s development. Also avoiding being bias is important if a child’s development is to be…

    It is important that you understand the purpose of the observations that you do as part of your role. You do this because you will need to report any findings to the class teacher who will then report it to the parent/carer. It’s important that teachers and parent/carers share any information about the child or young person’s best interests. The observation can be done in a formal or informal way. There are advantages to doing both these aswell as disadvantages.…

    You can learn what they can and can’t do as well as highlight areas of success and need for improvement and development. Once you have highlighted these areas and needs you can plan specific activities and challenges for the children. It is also important because with permission you can discuss issues with the child’s other childcare providers and gain a full understanding of where the child is at. You can also build a record of the child’s development with their parents so you can track their achievement, which is helpful so you can see how a child has progressed. An example of how observing children can help you learn about them is if you observe a child can put his shoes on, but not do the Velcro you can plan to give him more time to try the Velcro bit and practice without the pressure of rushing out the door. Alternatively you could buy some Velcro strips and do an activity where you play with them and Velcro things…
