Shared Care – observation clip 1

Jack is with his key person Rose, when she has to attend to another of her key children, Laura steps in.

Good for looking at

  • The key person approach
  • Multiple attachments
  • Attachment at nursery
  • Attachment behaviour
  • Support for the key person
 

Jack is with his key person Rose, when she has to attend to another of her key children, Laura steps in.

Notice

  • What evidence do you see of practitioners supporting each other to enable an effective key person approach?
  • How do practitioners support children when their key person is not available?

Reflect

What are your thoughts about:

  • What Jack communicated about his emotional state – what did his body language tell you?
  • Jack’s level of development – what stage of the attachment process does he seem to be at?
  • The role of the adults in this interaction – how did they support Jack?
  • How did the adult’s support each other?

Further reflection

(you may want to watch more observation clips before moving on to further reflection)

  • When might you need support from others with your key children?
  • What might prevent effective information sharing?
  • Why do you think shared care is important: for the child, for the parents, for the practitioner?

Respond

  • What action can be put in place to improve how you support each other?
  • Do you share information effectively? Could this be improved?
  • Does shared care work better in some rooms rather than others? Could you organise for planned observations to share nest practice in your setting?
