Keeping a Record of Supervision

Barnardos. (2020). Support and Supervision in Early Learning and Care.
The most important resource in an early learning and care setting is its educators. When educators are supported in their professional development as part of a trusting relationship with a supervisor, they will be able to perform their role well. Supervision and support in early learning and care offers educators a space to reflect on their practice, assess their own strengths, and review where they might need coaching and support from a supervisor to plan for future practice. This is fundamental to children receiving quality early learning and care. Regular supervision also provides a protective factor in ensuring that group settings are a safe place for children to spend time. The link between supervision and safeguarding practice is an important one that managers and providers need to ensure educators understand (Sturt & Wonnacott, 2016).
