E1050 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
    
1. Overview
During your work placement, you will be undertaking a variety of duties and tasks that relate to your course and the role of an early childhood educator and carer. You will need to successfully demonstrate that you can perform tasks required in the work environment and collect evidence.
Your work placement Portfolio is divided into 2 Parts and should be submitted separately. This is Work Placement Portfolio Part 1.
Your Work Placement Portfolio Part XXXXXXXXXX/P2 should be submitted separately. You will need to complete your portfolio within the original Portfolio Assessment downloaded from Open Space. When uploading your portfolio for submission, you can submit as a single Word document or a single PDF document.
Your Supervisor will give you guidance and feedback on your performance, supporting you to complete the tasks in an appropriate and professional manner.
Evidence of your performance must be collected and submitted to your Open Colleges Assessor. This document, Work Placement Portfolio Part 1, consists of nine (9) tasks that are outlined with instructions on how to collect evidence.
2. Work Placement Portfolio
Your Open Colleges Workplace Assessor will talk to your Approved Workplace Supervisor about all the tasks you have completed throughout your work placement. Your Approved Workplace Supervisor will confirm that you have completed each task according to the instructions, and so you need to ensure your Approved Workplace Supervisor witnesses each task as you complete them.
Work Placement Portfolio Part 1 needs to be uploaded once you have completed all nine (9) tasks in a single Word document or a single PDF document.
Important note for students and supervisors
All tasks in this document must be completed and individually signed and dated. We are not able to accept ‘group’ or ‘combined’ signatures or dates.

At the beginning of your work placement, you will need to consult with your Approved Workplace Supervisor to choose a focus group of children*. When completing the Tasks in Portfolios 1 and 2 you will observe and plan experiences for your focus children, and support their holistic wellbeing, learning and development. You will also implement and evaluate experiences for your focus children using the Early Years Learning Framework to guide your programming approach.
*Your focus group of children should consist of 5 or 6 children of varying ages; at least 3 of these children must be babies and toddlers and one child must have additional needs.
Task for completion prior to the Workplace Assessor visit

    Task you are reflecting on (insert Task number from Portfolio): Task 1
    Briefly summarise what happened during this task/experience:
In the task, two children Nova of age 3 years 4 months and Ashray of 4 years participated in the preparation meals. The meal preparation selected for the task was Pizza. The vegetables were cut and cleaned prior in order to avoid injuries or cuts. At Early Miles Stone day care, both the children were first introduced to each other. Then I explained to them what we are going to prepare. I asked Nova (3.4 years) to put the flat
ead on the plate and lay pizza toppings and the grated cheese slabs over the
ead. While I asked Frank (4 years) to add vegetables, dried basil and pizza sauce so that they all fit over the
ead instead of getting spilled on the plate. Once the vegetables were a
anged, I asked Ashray to put the other
ead over the first
ead carefully without spilling the vegetables in oven. I helped switching on the oven. After 10 mins I took out the prepared pizza from the oven.
    Questions for reflection
    Your reflection
    What worked well?
    While working closely with Nova and Ashray, I realised that both were very enthusiastic about the activity. They followed the instructions properly an made sure there were no spillage or wastage. I was surprised how well Nova managed working closely with Ashray and helping each other. While I was asking the children putting the vegetable, I noticed that were encourage by the mixture of coloured vegetables. They were creative in a
anging them. Nova was very keen on knowing why I have selected those particular vegetables. And Ashray was happy that I have added cheese as he like them. I explained to them how protein and fresh vegetables were essential for their health. I also asked them their food preferences and what they liked eating.
    What didn’t work well?
    I think should have added more of soy protein, dairy and nuts as both Ashray and Nova liked having them and they were not allergic to them. I should have explored more with the vegetables and colourful food items. I needed to ca
y food charts so that I could communicated more with the children and interest them more in proper diets.
    What would you do differently/improve on in the future?
    
I would add more protein like soy protein, dairy and nuts, I would ca
y food charts with me to communicate better with the children and add more colourful vegetables like beets, beans, capsicums, peas.

Task 2 Contingency Plans
Contingency plans A, B or C below may be used as appropriate:
Contingency Plan A: no children on formula
If there are no children in your service that are on formula, you may substitute powdered milk instead of formula. The directions must be followed to ensure a co
ect mix is achieved, as well as appropriately mixing to ensure all powder has dissolved. Please note that whilst this prepared milk may be used elsewhere (as appropriate) to avoid wastage, it is not to be given to children under 24 months of age.
Contingency Plan B: no children on
eastmilk
If there are no children in your service that are on
eastmilk, you may substitute cow’s milk (preferably un-homogenised as the fat in the milk comes to the top and can be mixed into the milk with a gentle shake, which is the case with
eastmilk). Note: Breastmilk looks different to cow’s milk or formula. Please note that whilst this prepared milk may be used elsewhere (as appropriate) to avoid wastage, it is not to be given to children under 24 months of age.
Contingency Plan C: premixed bottles provided by family
If the families in your service provide premixed (prepared) bottles, you will still need to demonstrate the preparation of one formula and one
eastmilk bottle while your Approved Workplace Supervisor observes/supervises. You will also still need to feed a child a bottle and complete all steps in Task 2, omitting the steps that involve feeding the child a bottle prepared by you.
Note: For further guidance on following the contingency plans above, please ask your Open Colleges Workplace Assessor.

I am a student studying the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at Open Colleges.
To complete some of my units of competency, I am required to observe a child by using a range of observation techniques.
This may include photographs, samples of work, written comments, and/or a checklist of interests and achievements.
From these observations, I plan appropriate experiences suited to the age and interests of the child.
I request permission to observe your child.
· I will use your child’s first name only.
· I will keep observations confidential at all times.
· I will use the observations for the purpose of my study and assessment requirements only.
· I am a student, so my observations might not be accurate or valid.

Appendix H: Bottle feeding research documentation template
    Bottle feeding research documentation
    Research 1
Briefly answer the following questions (maximum 200 words):
    What information did you collect on infant feeding requirements and food safety guidelines for babies and toddlers, including dietary requirements and nutritional needs?
    The babies of age in between the age of 9 months to 12 months the child will require feedings of 8 ounces with 2 to 3 feeding per 24 hours. Although type
east milk is one of the best formulae for the child, however supplemented
east feeding can also be provided to the child if the child is more than 3 to 4 weeks.
    What information did you collect on accepted preparation methods for a
eastmilk bottle and a formula bottle?
    During the preparation of the
east milk, the storage and temperature of the formulae needs to be appropriate. The bottles are first cleaned and sterilised. The bags of the frozen
east milk are
ought at room temperature and then shaken so that the milk is thoroughly mixed with the creamy layer. In case of prepared formulae, after the sterilisation of the bottle, the stored formulae is added in the co
ect quantity in the heating water and then poured in the bottle.
    How did you follow these requirements whilst ca
ying out this Task?
    Hinata is the selected child in this task. The prepared formulae were prepared by following the above techniques. After sterilisation of the bottle, 2 scoops of prepared formulae will be added to 120 ml of warm water. In case she is hungry, 3 scoops in 180 ml of hot water will be added. Hinata prefers to have hot solutions, hence, while feeding it was ensured that the formula was hot.
    Research 2
Briefly answer the following questions (maximum 200 words):
    Did you obtain signed permission form to observe and work with the child?
    Yes, a signed consent was taken from the parents of the child before ca
ying out the test.
    What information did you sight from each child’s records about their culture, diet and allergy requirements, and/or discuss these with the child’s family/educators?
    The information that were collected from Hinata includes, the child is 6 months old, female. She is from Cooks Island, Samoan origin. Her family speaks English. She does not have a fixed sleeping routine. She is cu
ently on bottle feed which is mostly pre-prepared formulae.
    What information did you gather about the prefe
ed method of feeding this child, and the child’s individual cues for hunger?
    Hinata usually prefers being fed from the bottle, provided the solution is hot. In case the milk formulae is at room temperature or cold she will not take it. Further, ideally, Hinata take 120 ml of the solution, but if she wants more, she will let one know and a solution of 180 ml will be prepared for her.
    How did you refer to this information whilst ca
ying out this Task?
    I found the available information was helpful, especially during feeding, I observed Hinata does not have much trouble in feeding process and she shakes her head side by side or sucks her lips and tongue when she wants more. In such cases I had prepared a solution of 180 ml of the formulae.

    General reflections
Reflect on the children’s responses and your own involvement. Consider the questions below when reflecting on this task and insert your response (maximum 200-300 words) depending on task requirements).
    Task you are reflecting on (insert Task number from Portfolio): 2
    Briefly summarise what happened during this task/experience:
During this task I prepared the bottled formulae according to the suggested quantity of 2 scoops in the solution of hot water of 120 ml. I made sure Hinata is been fed after every two to three hours. In case she shows symptoms of hunger, I prepared for her a bottle of 180 ml.
    Questions for reflection
    Your reflection
    What worked well?
    The information collected prior regarding Hinata had helped me in feeding process of Hinata. Since she was 6 months of age and she required feeding in between every two to three hours. Her mother told me that Hinata suckles her lips and tongue when she is hungry or want more of her feed. I also prepared the formulae just few minutes before feeding Hinata. This avoided keeping the solution in the room temperature for a longer period of time which can cause stomach upset in the child.
    What didn’t work well?
    Since I knew that Hinata prefers warm solution, I made sure while feeding the bottle was warm before feeding her. However, I did realise while heating that the formulae gets unevenly heated and can create hot spots if it is not warmed appropriately.
    What would you do differently/improve on in the future?
    In future, I will make sure while feeding the baby, the warmth of the solution is equally distributed equally throughout the solution. Another aspect which I noticed while feeding Hinata was it is better to sit the baby uptight while feeding the baby and prevented gas. So next time onward I would allow the child to sit uptight while feeding or I might put her on swing so that the motion help her sooth after feeding.

    Required Task
    a) Prepare to feed a hot meal to a child
· Research 1: To prepare yourself adequately, refer to infant feeding requirements and food safety guidelines, including dietary requirements and nutritional needs of babies and toddlers. Note: you would already have done this in Task 2.
· Research 2: Obtain a signed permission form to work with the child. You will then need to sight (i.e. child’s various records) and/or discuss (i.e.: with family/educators) the children’s culture, diet and allergy requirements beforehand. This will include finding out the prefe
ed method of feeding this child, and the child’s individual cues and preferences. Ensure you include this research in ca
ying out this task. Note: This cannot be the same child as the one you bottle-fed in Task 2.
· Consider the hot meal (including the individual ingredients) that has been selected for the child and whether is it appropriate for this child, based on your research above. You should also consider at least one alternative meal, in case the child does not like the meal you are initially providing.
· You will also need to include a drink for the child. The food and drink should meet the dietary requirement guidelines for the child’s age group. If you are unsure, discuss this with your Approved Workplace Supervisor before proceeding. Document the food and drink (including ingredients) and any alternative meals you could consider in Appendix I.
· Ensure that you, your working environment (i.e. tabletop, sink, etc) and all equipment and utensils (i.e. plates, spoons, etc) are sterile (where applicable), safe and clean.
· Prepare the food and drink for the child, heating the food according to the service policy and procedures. The temperature of the food will need to be appropriate for the child – consider your research for this task. Take any appropriate actions in this regard.
· Prepare the child to receive the meal. Ensure all eating areas, furniture and utensils are appropriate for the age of the child and are safe and clean.
