I am doing a certificate 3 in children services and I am new to this site...so please any one can help me with this case scenarios...I am really stuck on this ones...
Your room leader often leaves you alone in the room with the children. There are more than twenty preschool aged children in the room.
Why is this inappropriate?
Does this action breach any regulations, service/centre policies or procedures – if so which ones?
Who would you talk to about this issue?
The second one is:-
Kay works in the babies’ room at the centre. Mitchell is a new child in the room, starting his first week this week. Mitchell is 9 months old and an only child. Mitchell’s mother Julie informs the staff that Mitchell is used to being cuddled and nursed all day by his father or grandma. Mitchell is at the Centre from 9.00am till 1.00pm every day and screams whenever Kay puts him down. Kay gets a brief break if she rocks him to sleep in his pram. Mitchell will then sleep for 30 mins. You observe Kay looking very tired and frustrated.
How can you support Kay?
What advice would you give Kay to reduce her stress and fatigue?
What records could be documented to share this information with other staff and Mitchell’s family?
