In my setting every activity has to be planned: This means that you also need to plan for the unexpected or unusual to happen and always be alert. Therefore, when planning an activity make sure the place of what I plan to do with the Children is the right environment for the activity for example if I was using bikes and scooters in the play area outside in the playground, Firstly would ensure that the equipment; such as bikes and scooters are in ape and good working condition.Secondly, I would ensure the bikes and scooters are used in the proper manner and with plenty of space. I would also ensure that the main gates to the setting are closed so that no Child or young person would go out without my knowledge. I would provide safety equipment such as helmets and knee pads.
My colleague helps me to support those children who are only still learning to learn to ride a tricycle. When using outdoor environments I make sure the plants around are not in the way.Once I planned an activity of going to a park, I tried to make sure that there is no dog or cat mess around. Also ensure I went to areas of the park where the hard ground is even and rubbish is removed on a daily basis, and that was familiar with. Am aware that a varied environment supports Children and Young people’s learning and development, it gives them confidence to explore and learn in safe and secure yet challenging indoor or outdoor space.
In my setting risk assessments is carried out for all activities and regular checks are carried out around the setting daily.
