201: Understand employment responsibilities and rights in health, social care or children and young people's settings
On their first day with the nursery staff receive an induction, which makes them fully aware of the nursery policies and procedures and outlines their role and responsibilities and what is expected of them as an employee of the nursery. The induction also covers the emergency exits and evacuations procedures, safeguarding and child protection, inclusion and equality policy and the general health and safety for the nursery as a whole.
* Ensuring the environment is clean – Although the nursery has daily cleaners who clean the nursery at the end of play and who twice a week carry out a deep clean, it is the collected responsibility of all staff to ensure the environment is kept clean throughout the day. This means cleaning up any mess or spillages using the appropriate cleaning tools and products. The practitioners, along with the help from the children, are also required to tidy away the toys and playing equipment, and wipe down tables before each meal time so the area is clear for the arrival of plates, cutlery and food and drinks. This is to ensure a healthy and safe environment when eating.
In this assignment I am going to explain the roles and responsibilities of two members of the work force that look after children and young people and evaluate the regulation of care provision for looked after children and young people.
It is important to ensure children and young people are protected from harm within the setting, as the parents are leaving their children in your care with the expectation that they can trust you and your colleagues to keep their children from harm. It is difficult for parents to leave their children in an education or care setting and then go to work; they need to be confident that their children will be in safe supportive hands with people that will help them develop.
My job role includes ensuring the happiness, wellbeing and safety of all the children I work with and to make sure that I help, together as a team with the other practioners that I work with to provide a stimulating environment where the children can learn and thrive from.
By following good practise I proved appropriate care, and I fi didn’t individuals would suffer. Communication is very important when working with young children as they need to be able to understand simple instructions and want to be able to listen and communicate back to you. Communication does not involve just speaking but also listening,

A. As we (as nursery nurses) are the ones that spend time with the children and look after them, we are the first contact for not only the children but for their parents too. So it’s very important that we are seen as professional and competent people at all times. I, as an individual, work alongside a small team of professional childcare workers to support, inspire, care for and look after all the children within my care. I will maintain a safe environment for the children to explore, learn and play in. I am polite to other staff, children and parents and communicate well with everyone.
I, as with any member of staff am involved in the planning and delivering of learning programmes which support personal and behavioural change, with direction and support from my senior.
All people working with children are governed by legislation that is in place to protect your children and the child care provider. In this document I have listed four important legislations that are of particular importance to home based child care providers and noted how I aim to incorporate them into my practice. Child care practitioners also have a regulatory body; in England it is Ofsted. This document gives you a brief description of their supervisory role in child care settings. However, the list of legislation is not comprehensive and nor is the short description of Ofsted’s Role, if you would like more information or would like to discuss
I have always enjoyed working with young children and it been a dream of mine since I was young . I have had experience of working in a nursery when I done work experience during my time at school. I worked at Pinocchio's nursery for 2 week which in my time at Pinocchio's I worked with different age groups from babies to pre-school. During my time I help with certain activity's such as helping with feeding, going out walking/playing, napping and reading stories. I also have two younger brother who have recently just turned two and I am fully hand on when it come to looking after them I love taking them out places and have enjoyed seeing them grow up from being babies to young boys, seeing them take their first step, first words etc. In
The private day nursery is a small organisational structure that is situated on the outskirts of a small market town. Within the organisational structure there are numerous different roles including: 25 nursery practitioners with qualifications ranging from level two to level five and with one Qualified Teacher Status, with thirteen members of staff part time, doing various hours throughout the week (Ofsted, 2014). With the structure being small, staff have more than one job role to contend with. However, the staff within the setting
