- 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?
What are your thoughts about:
- Jack’s 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?
(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?
- 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?
