At Manor Academy, we believe that the subject of Childcare provides students with valuable life skills that allow them to become more independent in the outside world. It allows students to learn the knowledge needed to provide essential care for children, which helps to prepare them for family life, possible careers in a childcare setting and overall independence. Students learn about the appropriate care, nutrition and development of children and pregnancy, and are encouraged to develop these skills through independent learning, teamwork and classroom guidance.
In each unit of work, students are encouraged to engage in discussion and collaborate, using their own thoughts, ideas and experiences. Using cross curricular links and connecting lesson content to the outside world strengthens students understanding of the needs of children and the role of a care-giver. Students are encouraged to build their researching skills by supplementing their classroom learning with independent exploration of tasks.
Students are introduced a range of different products, skills and responsibilities to engage in for each unit, with opportunities in child care settings to gather real life experience and understanding.
To guarantee that students have received experience with children's growth and the responsibilities that come with being a child care provider. Our goal is to inspire students to take charge of their education and to increase their understanding of transferrable abilities. Our aim is to encourage students to take ownership of their learning and develop the awareness of transferable skills Childcare and other subjects during discussion, research, practical activities and class work. We promote student progress enhance their outcomes by using scaffolding, solo taxonomy, and positive critical feedback.
