To prepare for this discussion:

• Read Standard #9 in the in the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards (Links to an external site.)
• Review the five bullet points provided at Standard 9: Physical Environment (Links to an external site.)
As the new teacher’s assistant at Bright Futures Early Learning Center, your teacher and director see so much potential in you. Because of this, they would like you to help with administrative tasks as well as work with the children in the infant to Pre-K facility.
Your director knows that your current classroom is meeting NAEYC Standards; however, they want you to help enhance this classroom and the facility so Bright Futures Early Learning Center earns a 5-star rating.
Using a Word Document, a scratch piece of paper, or any other sketching tools, brainstorm a very basic outdoor space that can work for all ages. Carefully consider NAEYC Standard #9 as you build your outdoor space.
In your initial post,
• Describe the space that you created and justify your design using NAEYC Standard #9.
• Address all five bullet points from Standard #9: Physical Environment and discuss how your design meets each requirement.
• To help give your peers a visual of your idea, attach the image of your design to your discussion response. (This is recommended, but not required.)

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, review Standard #5 in the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards document (Links to an external site.). You did such a fabulous job helping your facility get into tip top shape! Now it is time to take this a step further and help your parents become active members of their child’s education.

Choose the age-level classroom that is ideal for you (please be consistent throughout the course and choose the same age group): Infancy (birth -12 months), Toddlers (1-3 years), or Early Learning (4 -5 years). Please be sure to list your choice of age-level in the subject line of your discussion post.
Once you have chosen your classroom level, create or find a game or activity that can be played at your Parents Night. This game or activity should teach your families about the importance of one task or skill such as hand washing, cleaning toys, or snacks and meals, etc. Your activity should reflect NAEYC Standard # 5. In your discussion post, include the age level of your classroom, title of the activity, the ways in which you will present this to the parents, and why you think this is important. 

Your activity must involve both your parents and their child. You must also include music to compliment or enhance your activity.

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, review the Illness Flyer example.
Using the classroom age group you chose in the last discussion, create a flyer or poster to share with parents addressing the following standard: There is a clear plan for responding to illness, including how to decide whether a child needs to go home and how families will be notified.
Based on the information in Chapter 6 of the Gadizikowki (2013) text, create a classroom poster relaying the information necessary to let parents know the policy and procedures if a child is sick at school. Use Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint, or another program of your choice to create this poster.
Be sure your poster includes the following items:
• All possible symptoms that would warrant a call (including temperature).
• The amount of time parents are given to pick up their child after they receive a call.
• A clear plan that will be followed if the parents cannot be reached.
• How the child will be cared for until pick up.
• Consequences for parents who are non-compliant.
• Be sure to include one image to represent the content.
Be creative with your poster, but also be sure to develop your content in a professional classroom manner. Make sure it is organized, colorful, and easy to follow. As a reminder, this will be distributed to parents and displayed in the classroom, therefore it must be free of grammatical errors. Please see the attached PDF to see an example of this flyer.
In your response, attach your illness flyer and write: how did you make decisions surrounding your policies? Explain your choices and justification in your written response to give your peers a better idea of your rationale. Additionally, explain how you made the flyer and your experience with the actual development of the flyer.

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment (Links to an external site.).
Those who work with young children often face difficult ethical decisions. You are realizing your center has various situations that compromise the code, but unfortunately your lead teacher and a few others within the center don’t see the issues the same way you do. They have given you the opportunity to justify your rationale and create a potential plan to rectify the situations.
Review the scenarios below and choose two situations to rationalize and resolve for your lead teacher and colleagues. Use the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment (Links to an external site.) as a guide to make recommendations and identify rationale. There are four areas of ethical responsibilities: children, families, colleagues, and community and society. Be sure to select scenarios from different areas.
Scenarios:
#1: Your center has a rule that no outside food is to be brought in for snack or lunch for a child under any circumstances. While your weekly menus often support the diverse needs of the learners, you now have a student who has extreme sensitivities and allergies. When trying to create the menu, you are realizing that the other students would need to eat unbalanced meals and would begin lacking the proper nutrition. You have asked your teacher about this rule to see if it can be changed for this situation and she said no.
#2: One child is having a hard time adjusting to class and his mom would like to stay a little bit longer in the beginning of class to help him get familiar and comfortable. You were allowing this and it was working very well, however your director has now told you that this is not allowed. Parents are required to drop off their kids and leave immediately after.
#3: A little girl is having issues with another little boy in the class. They often fight with each other and recently she told you that he always tries to touch her and watch her in the bathroom and she doesn’t like it. You took this very seriously, however your director told you that she is only five years old so it’s nothing to worry about. You believe you should contact both parents in this situation, but the director argues that the parents will think you aren’t doing a good job watching them.
#4: You have a few children in your class with various cultures and religions. Some of these conflict directly with the holiday calendar that your teacher has created. You’ve asked your teacher if you can modify the activities to help bring in all of the cultures of the families and she turned you down. One parent has let you know that they have issues with Christmas due to their own religion, however your teacher said, “This is the way it’s always been.”
#5: You proposed curriculum surrounding manners and helping others. You believe this curriculum is important for the age you are working with, as a lot of the kids don’t seem to understand the basic principles. Your teacher isn’t open to the change, but you are seeing more and more selfish behaviors and think this type of curriculum could really make an impact on their lives. Most of your kids come from families where parents work at least two jobs, so you believe they just don’t have the time to teach their kids these basic principles.
To complete your assignment, identify each component below for each scenario:
• Summary of the scenario and justification that proves how this situation is unethical (rely heavily on the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment here and point to specific                       principles within the code).
• Identify appropriate resources to use for the scenario and the individuals necessary to inform.
• Create a plan to not only solve the problem now, but also to prevent it from occurring again in the future.
                     In your paper,
• Include an introduction and a conclusion.
• Summarize both scenarios and the specific code numbers that were compromised within the scenarios.
• Identify the proper individuals necessary to inform.
• Determine appropriate resources for both scenarios.
• Explain the steps necessary to problem solve each scenario.
                     The Ethical Scenarios Paper
• Must be three to five double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external                      site.)’s APA Style (Links to an external site.)
• Must include a separate title page with the following: 
o Title of paper
o Student’s name
o Course name and number
o Instructor’s name
o Date submitted
• For further assistance with the formatting and the title page, refer to APA Formatting for Word 2013 (Links to an external site.).
• Must utilize academic voice. See the Academic Voice (Links to an external site.) resource for additional guidance.
• Must include an introduction and conclusion paragraph. Your introduction paragraph needs to end with a clear thesis statement that indicates the purpose of your paper. 
o For assistance on writing Introductions & Conclusions (Links to an external site.) as well as Writing a Thesis Statement (Links to an external site.), refer to the Ashford Writing Center resources.
• Must use at least two credible sources in addition to the course text. 
o The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific                      source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.
• Must document any information used from sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.)
• Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, review the NAEYC’s Code of Conduct and Statement of Commitment. (Links to an external site.)
You are quickly impressing your lead teacher and director. Your director sees such promise in you that she has asked you to help her prepare for an upcoming staff meeting. Although you are nervous, you are excited for the opportunity and you truly want to impress them!
The director has been made aware that a few policies are not being enforced or were not made clear. She wants you to help her tackle this issue in the upcoming faculty meeting. You have heard a few people complaining about these specific policies, so you are excited to tackle the project. You hope that your contribution to the faculty meeting can help get everyone on the same page.
As you dig into the policies, you begin to realize that some policies aren’t followed because some staff believe these policies do not benefit the children and do not wish to engage with them. You have an ethical responsibility to your colleagues, children, families, and community to advocate against policies that do not benefit the children, so you must carefully consider these policies before presenting at the staff meeting.
Policy #1: Instruction will not change from student to student. All students are to be treated like equals and instructions will not be modified under any circumstances. Often times in life accommodations aren’t made and we want to set our children up for success.
Policy #2: On water day, each kid must have a pair of water shoes that are rubber bottoms and purchased by the parents. If the child does not have them, they are not allowed to engage with water play and must remain in the classroom while their peers are outside.
Before you write your response, make sure to review Chapter 10 of the Gadzikowski (2013) text, in regards to advocacy and the NAEYC Code of Conduct and Statement of Commitment to be clear on your obligations as an early childhood professional. In your discussion, answer the following questions for both policies individually:
• Is this policy ethical? Why or why not?
• If it is ethical, how will you get all staff on the same page and begin to enforce the policy? Be specific and consider revising the policy slightly to get more staff “buy in.”
• If it is not ethical, how do you plan to be an advocate? Be specific with your step by step approach and address who you will contact and what your plan is to bring awareness.

Your center and classroom are faced with many different workplace issues. While your director is working as quickly as she can, she can’t handle all of her responsibilities without your lead teacher. To demonstrate that you can handle helping, your director has asked you to take on some of the common workplace issues and create plans to resolve them. Your solutions will help her determine whether or not you are ready to solve problems within your own facility. Choose three of the four following issues and create proposals to resolve the issue. Be sure to utilize your textbook and answer all of the questions within the scenarios.
Scenario #1: Funding
Although you work in a private facility and your parents pay for their child’s care and learning, there are never enough funds to purchase materials you need to complete special projects. You have been supplementing your classroom by purchasing these items yourself because you want your students to have these special experiences, however, this is beginning to be a financial drain. This year, you still have five more special experiences that you were planning, but sadly, you can no longer afford to pay for these purchases. What do you do going forward?
Scenario #2: Safety
You work for a Head Start facility and therefore you receive government funds to assist with the upkeep of your facility. However, you notice that the side door is not shutting and locking correctly. The only way this door can be shut is with someone on each side of the door with a key. The front is always monitored by your director or a part-time receptionist and the back door leads to the secure playground. In light of the recent school tragedies, you are nervous about the door not locking and believe this is a safety issue. You ask your director if this can be fixed and she tells you that the facility does not have the money right now to do this. How can you problem solve this situation?
Scenario #3: New Community Center
There is a new community center down the street and they are very interested in working with your facility. They have a fabulous idea of creating a partnership with the seniors that utilize their center, however, they are not sure the best way to integrate these volunteers. In efforts to collaborate, they have asked you to create a class that will meet once a week. You are thrilled that you have volunteers that want to work with your little ones, however there is a lot that needs to be done before the class can begin.
• Choose the age-level classroom that is ideal for you:
• Infancy: Birth – 12 months
• Toddlers: 1-3 years
• Early Learning: 4 – 5 years
• Design a concept that can be done on a weekly basis with your children and the seniors from the community center. Explain all that needs to be done before the interaction begins.
Scenario #4: Children with special needs
You have a new student in your facility who is on the autism spectrum. You have never worked with a child with this disorder and you are not sure how to handle this behavior as compared to the other children in your classroom. Explain how you should go about determining the best way to deal with this child in your classroom. Explain all possible options and resources so that this child and the rest of your class has the best possible educational experience.
In your paper,
• Include an introduction and a conclusion.
• Choose three scenarios to write about.
• Explain, in detail, why the scenarios you have chosen are problematic.
• Prepare three plans that you believe would solve the three issues you have chosen.
• Complete the unique, individual questions related to each scenario.
The Workplace Issues Paper
• Must be five to seven double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references page) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)’s APA Style (Links to an external site.)
