iMatter As A Child Carer

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

I will have opportunities to visit the Enchanted Wood Nursery throughout the year, providing an invaluable real life experience to observe the practitioner delivering child care. I will study the theory elements of the course including learning about working with children in a variety of different settings and the roles and responsibilities of the childcare worker in safeguarding, as well as, upholding equality and inclusion for all children.

Year 10

I will learn in detail about the milestones and sequences of child development in all areas of the Physical, Cognitive, Language and Emotional and Social progress of the child, considering the genetic and lifestyle factors that can affect their holistic progress. I will also investigate the importance of relationships between practitioners and parents. This will be observed in practice as I complete work placements at the nursery for a term of the year.

Year 11

I will prepare to be assessed by an externally marked synoptic scenario based examination. This will cover all of the components of the previous units and I will learn the techniques required to answer questions on different settings, roles and responsibilities of the childcare worker, knowing when to refer information about a child and confidentiality. I will also investigate the four main learning styles and relevant study skills and the fundamental PIES of Child Development.

INTENT

iMatter as a Childcarer because I will fully appreciate the importance of good Early Years education. I will develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to promote the importance of pre-school socialisation and the Early Years Foundation Stage.  I will have opportunities to create a valuable vocational link to the sector and I will have an understanding of the impact of our Early Years services and their lasting effect upon our future generations of adults across the UK.
