1.1. Explain why positive relationships with children and young people are important and how these are built and maintained
Positive relationships with children and young people are important because:
When children feel comfortable with us they can separate more easily from their parents children are more likely to participate in the play and learning activities if they are secure emotionally
- when children have strong relationships, they are less likely to show unwanted behaviour as we can recognise and meet their needs
- children’s language develops more quickly because they feel confident talking to us
- practitioners can plan more accurately as they understand children’s developmental needs and know their interests
- practitioners are able to respond to children more effectively because they can recognise their expressions and emotions.
