  • be flexible and reactive to children’s emerging interests and needs and encourage children to communicate, explore and be creative and spontaneous
  • allow children to make decisions, problem solve and express and share their thoughts and opinions
  • provide opportunities to build upon children’s previous experiences to extend their development and learning
  • assist children in developing positive relationships with other children/staff and so that children see themselves as a valuable member of the community
  • use praise and reinforcement with children to boost self-esteem and encourage and motivate good practice and celebrate children’s efforts and achievements
  • anticipate conflict and assisting children and families to resolve any issues or instances of bullying and harassment
  • ensure staff are committed to improving their own professional development and continually challenge their own practices and decision making so as to provide an enriching learning environment for all
