16 observations one educator

Post by Elissa Anderson » Sat Nov 13, 2021 2:44 pm

So at the end of each month we have to hand in a copy of all our obs and the program to show the planning circle so each child is meant to have

2 individual observations
1 group observation
art piece with blurb/ob

Now I have 16 children on the roll and work in the kindy room so ratio 11:1 and I think 3 days a week I have more and so get different educators each time so find it hard to get them to help with observations but am struggling to get all these done on my own and end up doing it in my own time like most of the things I need to do for work and I have already raised my concern with my director but there is nothing that can be done.


Please help

Hi! :wave:

You have to delegate that's the only way to get this load off your shoulders. You cannot complete this by yourself without stress and working at home to complete them.

Even if they are different educators coming in then that's ok each one will have their own perspective when observing a child. So spread the children over the course of the month and set up a time table for days and which child to observe and which educator.

You will still oversee all documentation such as reading the ob etc by other Educators so your up to date yourself.

Try not to stress - ask for help and support from your room team.

thanks Lorina. I have asked for help but got no where and when i leave tasks they dont get done and the staff that come into my room are either people that dont know the children or are all ready in a room doing obs and are trying to focus on their own.
