There are many underlying values and principles of working with children and promoting a positive learning experience within a childcare setting. One of these principles is Choice which is where children can make their own choices on what they want to do and learn about how others also have the same choices. Also this means that children should be aware of all the choices available in the nursery that day. This is shown in my placement as children in the baby room are given a wide choice of toys and activities through the day and have easy access to the toys that are available in the room, such as a sensory toy box, books that the children can access, art supplies that the practitioner can bring out at any time and larger movement focused toys that encourage children to used both gross and fine motor skills. This large range of choice benefits children as it allows them to play at their own pace and then learn through this play, as well as learning further if a practitioner uses responsive planning to the child’s choice then they can develop an activity to further a skill. Also using mind maps or voting sticks in a nursery would contribute to children’s choice. This principle links to national care standards through Standard 5, “Each child or young person can experience and choose from a balanced range of activities.” This links to choice as it details children’s choice and how they use and can develop from a wide range of activities that they choose to do.
