Changing Area

Hi all

Does anybody display continuous provision sheets in changing areas?

I have been asked by nursery manager to do this for our areas and have come to a stop, looking for inspiration.

Cheers

I'm guessing you do mean nappy changing area, given your in the BT3 forum. :o

 

I suppose also that changing nappies is all part and parcel of the continuous provision for this age/stage band, having said that a CP with comments such as;

PSE: dignity, well being, eye contact, interaction /building secure relationships, Toilet training, health/ ashing hands etc xD

CLL; rhymes/songs whilst changing, visual signs, talking/interacting. :(

PSRN: How much does 'it' weigh? (no, sorry not funny xD ) Maybe a number mobile to look at whils being changed? :(

KUW: Interesting things to look at ie: mirrors (grasping at straws here :unsure: ) :(

Phys; bodily functions :rolleyes: , self care skills, dressing/undressing :wacko:

 

Takes quite a bit of thinking about, to write down what our natural interactions with babies are whilst changing them. ;)

The main focus I would say is PSE and Phys.

Yes unfortunately I do mean nappy changing area as this is what I have been asked to do for the baby room. It's apparently to encourage key people to focus upon making this time a special bonding time between staff and baby.

Thanks for help Peggy, this was kind of staff I thought I would have to focus upon.

I must admit I don't think it's a bad idea to have displays of how interactions take place in thi area, what I would suggest is that you get your staff to write it though, makes them think the nappie changing process through a bit more in respects of how they can make this 'activity' best for the child xD

 

I remember an FSF member who would write lots about the learning potential of the changing/toilet area, I think she felt she spent most of her time in there, her name evades me at the moment. (I think it was Jan or a name beginning wth J :o )

 

maybe if she's still around she will come along and offer more ideas. :(

Are you referring to diane? We had quite a laugh about the fact that she should write a book on it. :o

 

 

Yes Beau, It was Diane, shows my memory cells have really gone thinking her initial was J. xD
