Nannies approach towards children and working with parents:
England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have slightly different approach to the early years’ education. We are proud of our nannies; they have got a vast experience working for families in the UK.
All those nations have some common approach to the care and education of children. They are: partnership and involvement with parents, learning through active play, need for children to have opportunities for child-initiated and adult-led activities, education programme is to be delivered holistically although divided into areas of learning and importance of assessing children`s individual needs.
It`s very important that children are seen as individuals. They`ve got different needs and interests which should be looked at and helped with. Children come from different backgrounds, that means they have different needs. Nannies should have a different approach to help children to recognize and develop their full potential. Every child should have the opportunity to grow and learn.
Nannies should also take extra care of child`s emotional well-being. It`s very important that children feel safe and protected. Children start spending more time away from their parents so it`s important that they grow in stable environment where they are protected from emotional and physical dangers.
When the nanny provides proper environment for the child, that child will learn and develop. It`s also important that children have opportunities to have different experiences and availability of resources. It is very important to be a good role model because, as it’s been proven by psychologist Albert Bandura in his experiment where he showed a film with different endings to small children which resulted in the children to imitate the actions on the movie, children learn mostly by imitating other children and adults. That’s why often we say that the child behaves like his/her mum or dad or that he/she “brings” certain behaviours from school or playground.
To learn how to love children need to know they are loved no matter what they do. If they misbehave, do something wrong, they must know it’s the unacceptable behaviour we don’t like, not them. Also to learn how to love children need to be able to experience self-love and self-respect. To achieve that they need to be told and shown they are loved, by healthy affection and good quality time spent with them, not just assume that they know. All these teach the children to be the same loving and affectionate when they grow up.
Self-help skills are very important for every human. Developing them during childhood always benefits in adulthood. Every single child will become an adult and whether he/she will be able to manage his/her adult life well depends on the skills they learn throughout their childhood. Praising them for little achievements or just the attempts to achieve something is a key to building up their confidence and an attitude of not giving up when things go wrong. For every single one of us to know and experience that we have the ability to help ourselves, thanks to our self-help skills, in any situation, good or bad, makes us feel more relaxed and happy and in the same way makes our life happier.
