It is important to understand the expectations, including codes of practise, regulations, minimum standards or national occupational standards.
Some expectations are:
● reflect on their work
● record their qualifications
● understand what effective practise looks like
● formulate their selfdevelopment plan
● allow managers to understand staff experience/qualifications and training needs to support the development of the setting.
It is also expected as a practitioner to keep every child safe and secure in the environment as they learn and develop. It is very important to complete risk assessments daily for the safety of the children. Making sure the nursery is clean will help prevent the spread of illnesses and infections in the provision. Childcare providers must also have procedures for administering medication and supporting children with medical needs or who appear unwell during the day.
