1.3. Explain how the documented outcomes are assessed and recorded.
What is best practice when it comes to facilitating young children's learning? Stephanie Mathivet, curriculum and standards manager for the Pre-school Learning Alliance, [ discusses this issue The Early Years Foundation Stage requires all settings to carry out formative assessment from when a child first starts to attend a setting outside of the home, until the end of the Early Years Foundation
Stage. Those responsible for curriculum leadership will need to focus their priorities towards developing sound assessment processes in order to assess and plan for each child. A clear vision is required on the part of the curriculum leader as to what will comprise the setting’s approach. All practitioners need to be part of that vision and feel that they have the skills and experience to contribute as well as be willing to learn. Every practitioner, in their role as a child’s key person, will need to be able to carry out assessment to the required standard; this may be daunting for those who are less qualified, so a team approach is supportive to all and makes the most of everyone’s skills. In settings where there is a wide range of training and qualification levels, this is a challenging task and it is important to find ways of developing staff skills that keep everyone on board. Seeing the early years setting as an informed community of practice (Anning and Edwards, 2003) will help to develop a whole-setting approach to assessment methodology that recognises the strengths, the knowledge and experience that each person contributes.

1.2 Explain how different approaches to work with children in the early years has influenced current provision in the UK
Weegy: There are common features between them all rather than the direct influences that educational approaches such as Reggio Emilia had/have, [ [ notably - Parent partnership - Learning through active participation and play - A need for balancing adult and child led/initiated activities - That the framework supports practitioners to deliver education holistically although areas of learning are individually named, divided or categorised. - A recognised importance of assessing children's individual needs One significant difference between all four here is that England's Early Years Foundation Stage is the only framework to include children aged less than 3 within its statutory positon. All other nations provide guidance, good practice and recommendations - Scotland's Prebirth to three. ............... ] ] (More)

1.3. Explain how the documented outcomes are assessed and recorded.
Weegy: Planning for children’s development start’s with observations in order to find out the child’s previous knowledge, [ their interests and needs. There are many forms of observations that can be carried out to allow us to collate the evidence we need to plan appropriately for the individual child. Each method of observation has advantages and disadvantages of recording the child’s development, so it is important to use a variety of methods of observation for each child to gain holistic knowledge and understanding of the child’s development. ] (More)

Explain systems for supporting childrens safety when: Receiving children into the setting
Weegy: Welfare requirements - Within your setting you should safeguard and promote Children's welfare, we must take necessary steps to ensure this. [ [ [ [ We must promote good health of all children within our care and take steps to prevent the spread of infection from others within our care and take appropriate action when they are ill. We must ensure that there are suitable people and staffing levels are appropriate to ensure safety to all children. The premises, environment and equipment must be suitable to cater for the children, these include outdoor and indoor spaces, furniture, equipment and toys and they must be safe and suitable for the children in your care, age/stage appropriate. Your safeguarding/admissions/settling in policies should be kept up to date. It is important for all staff to read all policies and procedures. As a practitioner you should be aware of nutrition needs and plan healthy meals/snacks for children and on some occasions give advice to parents. You should be aware of portion sizes, this is important because children can still become overweight on healthy foods if they are given too much. Every setting should have routines they should reflect the varying needs of all children within your group especially in terms of sleep and rest. All routines should allow time for outdoor play for all ages. Routines also need to be flexible enough to allow the children to finish their task. Under the EYFS we as practitioners observe children during physical play this is to note the skills that they are showing and what could be emerging, this gives us important information on how we can support the child such as providing new activities, toys or simply encourage the child. Within the EYFS it is important to work closely with parents, we can find out their child?s needs, you can also provide support and advice on topics, sleep, toilet training and nutrition.
