Adults vs cp areas

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by kaz_allan, Aug 31, 2011.

  1. How do you organize your adult cover in cp areas. We have ny 4 adults with a large indoor and 2 outdoor ares so I am wondering his children can have free access to all cp areas and be supervised, observed, assessed and interacted with?

    I am thinking of time tabling a Rota for each adult to try and get cover as best as I can -any suggestions ?

    Thanks

    I'm afraid the skill of good CP is knowing how to stand back and only stepping in to extend or enhance (adults can be a good enhancement sometimes) if really necessary. Observe from a distance and don't try to be everywhere. I would start slowly modelling how to use the areas and you will probably discover that an adult in a less well used area acts like a child magnet just as an adult offering unwanted interaction will cause a mass exodus.
