Caring for Children

Students taking the Caring for Children option have the opportunity to develop their understanding and knowledge of a variety of aspects in relation to caring for children of differing ages. Students complete a set of assignments that incorporate topics such:-

· Planning for the physical care needs of children aged 0-3 years

· Keeping children safe

· Communication skills with children

· Encouraging children to eat healthy

Plus many more

The topics covered are often interactive and include work with young children from outside the school. It incorporates visits to day nurseries and practical experiences. We have also purchased a real life simulated baby that pupils enjoy taking around school and home, developing their skills in how to practically met a babies needs.
