Welcome to our weekly quality improvement support series for 2020.
“It’s our polite nudge in the ribs to help you and your team stay organised and on task.”
This week’s subject is: Self Regulation
Element 5.2.2: Self-regulation
Each child is supported to regulate their own behaviour, respond appropriately to the behaviour of others and communicate effectively to resolve conflicts.
Does your program support self-regulation?
Is it clearly evident that your program demonstrates how planned and spontaneous experiences support children to develop and practice the skills required to participate in group discussions and negotiate shared decision making with their peers
Consider using a ‘key’ to make this information very clear on the program. For example: ‘SDM’ (Shared Decision-Making) could indicate experiences where shared decision-making with peers will be modelled and supported by educators
When planning appropriate strategies to support the positive inclusion of children with additional needs, document the views, ideas and preference of families. Provide a ‘key’ on this documentation to show where the ideas have been incorporated into the planned program.
Regularly communicate with families to provide feedback to support the positive inclusion of their child and make adjustments where necessary.
Within System7 go to QA5 / Module 6 to document your current self-regulation routines and strategies. The Suggestions area also contains information on: children’s individual files, strategic inclusion planning, behaviour guidance, behaviour management plans, and visuals.
The Childcare Centre Desktop also has a Behaviour Management module which include overviews and strategies, report forms and management plan templates.
