Diploma Early Childhood Education Care | Early Childhood Education

You are required to complete two projects for this assessment task.

Project 1

Educators are required to provide a safe environment where babies can grow in confidence to explore and learn, and practice new skills such as rolling over, sitting, crawling and walking.

This project requires you to plan a physical environment / area of your choice for babies aged between birth and 15 months. The area needs to:

  • be safe and secure
  • provide opportunities for relaxed and physical contact with educators
  • accommodate individual needs of the children in care, in particular the age range of children who will use this space.

Draw a picture in the space below, showing how you would set up the area for this age group. Nominate either the indoor or outdoor area, consider the layout and show the equipment and any other furnishings such as shelving, tables and chairs, or fixed play equipment and sandpits if outside.

You may prefer to draw on a separate piece of paper and attach it to this workbook.

Using the following table:

  • list the equipment/toys/games you used in this area
  • explain what safety aspects you needed to consider for your selections
  • identify the supervision level required for the activity and give a brief explanation.

(Explain reason)

Project 2

To complete this project, you will need access to a regulated early childhood education and care service that provides care for children aged 0-2 years. The service, where the task is completed, may be your usual place of work (if it is an approved early childhood education and care service under the National Quality Framework) or the host organisation where you are completing work placement.

The task requires you to gather information about three children aged 0-2 years from their parents or guardians, and to observe each child in everyday practices. Each child must be of a different age to the other. You are then required to use the information gathered to complete the tasks that follow.

Written permission from the children’s families must be obtained before starting the task. Use the Permission to observe form at the back of this booklet to obtain a families’ written consent. Submit completed forms with your project.

Please also discuss this task with your Director or workplace supervisor before starting. He/she may be able to suggest children and families to work with to successfully complete the task.

  1. First consult with the child’s family to find out about the child. Write a description of each child that includes information about their:
  • age
  • gender
  • cultural background
  • family’s home language
  • days of attendance
  • sleep/rest requirements and routine
  • dietary requirements and meal routine
  • immunisation status
  • allergies or medical conditions
  • favourite toy/comfort item.
  1. Secondly observe each child in everyday experiences for a week. Jot down what you see and hear, then refer to the developmental information in your textbooks to help determine the child’s approximate stage of development. Discuss your jottings and findings with the educators who primarily care for each child to check your conclusions.

Fill in a chart (provided below and on following pages) for each child. Create an activity you will include in the program to further develop their ability in each area. What safety considerations would you need to make to conduct the activity?

  1. Look for the signs each child displays when they become hungry, tired, stressed, or are experiencing discomfort. For each child list two signs observed, for example – pulls at ears when tired and suddenly becomes irritable when hungry. Record your observations in the table that follows.

For each sign witnessed note how you responded to the child’s needs. Use the table that follows to record your answers.

The table should allow you to describe the child’s food and fluid intake, sleep/rest, nappy changes/toileting and participation in the program. Fill this out for each child for a week.
  1. Describe an instance when you initiated one-to-one interaction with each child during personal care activity in the daily routine. How did the child respond?  Which developmental area did the interaction address?

Submissions must include contact details for the service, including the service’s name and full name of the Director or Coordinator, and telephone number. Please note that the Assessor may contact the Director or Coordinator to verify the completion of the task as outlined above. 

Permission to observe

Dear Parent/Guardian

I am a student studying the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at Open Colleges.

To complete some of my units of competency I am required to gather information about a child observe a child using a range of observation techniques. This may include photographs, samples of work, written comments and a checklist of interests and achievements. From these observations I plan appropriate experiences suited to the age and interests of the child.

I request permission to observe your child.

  • I will use your child’s first name only.
  • I will keep observations confidential at all times.
  • I will use the observations for the purpose of my study and assessment requirements only.
  • I am a student my observations may not be accurate or valid.
