Cypop 5 Task 2 Behaviour

Behaviour Management

All children and adults are treated with equal concern and are made to feel welcome in my setting. I aim to offer a quality childcare service for parents and children. I recognise the need to set out reasonable and appropriate limits to help manage behaviour of children in my care.

All information shared with me will be kept confidential unless there appears to be a child...
