To establish and maintain a safe environment and a healthy learning environment.
Keeping children in a safe environment is highly important. You can establish the responsibilities of keeping children in a safe environment by keeping full time supervision on each child. Many things have to be thought about when you’re taking care of children. When sending kids home you have to make sure you have full awareness of who it is who is taking the child. You would want to ask for a proof of identification and make sure they are authorized to retrieve the child. Having limits/rules in the center so children know what is expected of them and do not cross boundaries and stay safe in the center. When having a fire drill make sure they know where to go, and how to exit. Keep a checklist for things to do in emergency situations. Always take roll so you know who you have and if you’re missing anyone.
Something you always have to keep in mind is the children’s health. When children come in from the playground, as an adviser I would tell the children to make sure they wash their hands before snack time to prevent germs getting into their mouths. We would not allow children to share food during snack time so we can’t prevent allergic reactions. Many children may be allergic to different things so we wouldn’t allow certain foods into the center. Children may not always remember what they may be allergic to and try to share food and someone can get hurt. Teaching children about their health would be a very important topic so that the children could have good food to develop the best they could. We also are very aware of the spread of germs. We will always advise children to sneeze in their elbow and always wash their hand when they do.
A main goal is to have a fantastic learning environment with many hands on activities that children can experience a lot. Hands on activities are a great way to stimulate then children’s brain. Making sure...
