Personal, Social & Emotional Development

I will provide an environment where children can feel safe, secure and I will gain their trust. 
 
The children will learn to develop a positive sense of themselves and of others; social skills to include the difference between right and wrong; and a positive attitude to learning. 
 
The children will learn about relationships and how to respect themselves and others and the value of friendships. 
 
I aim to develop a positive self image by acknowledging and respecting the child’s culture and reflecting this where possible in the activities provided.  They will be encouraged to manage their own hygiene by washing hands, independently using the toilet, dressing and taking turns. 
 
The children are given control and freedom to choose activities to encourage a positive disposition to learning and opportunities to think about and practise ways of solving problems. 
 
As I care for younger children within the setting, I encourage the older children to be good role models for the younger ones.
