It was pleasant to read that my work as a preschool teacher will actually make a difference my student’s lives in both social behavior and academic success. The Head Start REDI program is not just a place where kids get dropped off to play. In fact, they still get a lot of social-emotional benefits just by playing. It is a program where kids learn and shape themselves. I knew that preschool and Head Start REDI programs were beneficial for kids but, I never knew the extent of the benefits until after reading this study and the exact skills they learn in a preschool of Head Start REDI

Additionally, as there are other kids at the center, children have chance to broaden their minds and learn some crucial social and communicational abilities. Therefore, it is more likely for these type of kids to be successful in future
Basic cognitive and social skills will both be improved through higher quality care. When a child is able to perform well in school at an early age, it increases their chances of staying successful throughout their lives as a student. Researchers at the Institute for Research on Poverty concluded, “Children who attend higher-quality child care settings display better cognitive, language, and social competencies on standardized tests.” The Cost, Quality, and Outcomes in Child Care Centers Study, which began in 1993, was a study over time of children in four states, it was designed to test if child care affects a child’s readiness for school. The study population was limited to children in families that had elected center-based care and did not include personal child care facilities that people provide from their own homes.

Introduction An ongoing discussion about the way teachers and children interact in daycare settings has been a topic of interest for many people who work and study in the field of early childhood psychology. Starting on June 10, 2013 and continuing through June 14, 2013, I conducted ethnographic field research about the most current ways daycare employees and children seem to interact on a daily basis. The research I was most interested with took place during times of play. Specifically, I wanted to examine how many times teachers and daycare students came into friendly physical contact on an average basis.

The fact in which Head Start is still operating after 50 years is an indicator of an evolving quality preschool. I agree with most of the article, however, I do not feel as though this article provides the Head Start Program with justice.
However, if children don’t feel safe in the nursery then they will lack confidence. Likewise, if the nursery doesn’t welcome diversity then families may feel excluded and less willing to chat about their child’s development, which may consequently hinder their development.

Nurseries can promote parent participation through: noticeboards, regular conversations, websites, frequent newsletters and meetings.
