There are several reasons why it is important to stick to the agreed scope of your job role in an early years setting.
First and foremost, it ensures that all children in your care receive the best possible standard of care. If you were to deviate from the agreed scope of your role, it could put the children in your care at risk. It could also lead to disciplinary action from your employer.
Another reason why it is important to stick to the agreed scope of your job role is that it helps maintain a good working relationship with your colleagues. If you constantly go outside of your agreed scope of work, it can strain relationships with other staff members.
