CYPCore32-4.1 Explain how own working practice can affect children and young people's development.
Children learn through imitation so they need to have good role models. It is important to teach children that all people are valuable, whatever their gender, race, ability or background. I can give them an example to follow and affect their development in the good way. For example: always saying please and thank you, encouraging them to eat healthy food by talking positively about it, etc. All practitioners working with children and young people have an absolute duty to safeguard and protect children/young people from harm and this means breaking confidency by sharing information in order to protect and dealing with the very difficult situations that can arise as a result. Working with children/young people I need to be confident and competent in providing the fundamental aspects of care. This gives confidence to the child/young person and their parents. I have to make sure that my behaviour, relationships with children/parents/staff, language, materials, resources and activities are appropriate for their age and stage of development. Using inappropriate materials and activities might discourage the child or potentially harm the child (physically or mentally). As a practitioner I need to be able to understand which activities will help children to develop as well as being able to support children in a range of situations. I have to respect their abilities and personal needs, every child develops at their own pace and in a unique way. A good understanding of child development is essential to prepare for and promote every child’s individual development and ensure the best outcome. Following and understanding the EYFS will guide us on the right direction.
