This is also another example of learning activities, programmes and assessment l was also part of the planning in our room (Toddler) and examples of learning stories I wrote under the planning. I also did a photo story for our centers blog to inform the parents of the current learning programme we were doing with the children.

Parents are comfortable and secure in the knowledge that their child is receiving excellent care that is consistent with their family needs, beliefs and values. Every parent wants the best for their children.
We have always received good feedback from the parents and I am happy to be part ot the team and for contributing greatly to the learning and development of the children who will be always be under our care.

I have been part of the learning activities, programmes and assessment in our room (Toddler).These are examples of learning stories I wrote for the planned activities I did with the children. In planning learning activities with the team, I had to assess which projects or learning experiences might be most valuable and meaningful within their specific context. I had to use the teaching technique of scaffolding. The teaching techniques I used to support scaffolding include questioning, prompting, praising, modelling and pointing out things to children.

Maintaining accurate records is important in any organisation as it provides data which is used as feedback to the community within and outside of the organisation. It is also useful for the management of the organisation when making decisions and reviewing procedures.Records of medication and nappy chart form a basis of communicating care which should or have been given to children. Portifolios serve to communicate the children's progress and work to the whole community. Without proper record keeping some issues may fall under the radar and some opportunities to improve on service delivery may be missed. Records are also useful to understand the daily occurances and how a programme is run, they are also used to build a shared understanding of what is valued and valuable for a group (community ). It is through maintaining accurate records in our room as a team that we have been able to communicate with each other and also with the parents using different documentation, portifolios, nappy chart, accident reports.
