Many would believe children learn and develop best when the ‘key worker’ system is implemented within a provision and when practitioners sustain a positive relationship and work in partnership with parents and carers. This is of importance as a positive relationship where the parents and carers can trust and respect one another, helps to provide an enabling environment for the children. Working in partnership benefits practitioners just as equally as it benefits parents. Parents and carers are the most important people and role models within children lives, however majority of parents have no choice but to work and that’s where our role of early years’ practitioners falls into place. Is it important to remember that parents and practitioners
Piaget is describe as the changes in logical thinking of children. Piaget is the theory of how children interact with our environment. Also to see what new information and knowledge a child has experience. Piaget is to interact with our social and physical environment. Piaget is more dealing with nature and capabilities.
They can do this through: setting a good example; being positive; building up children’s confidence by focussing on the things that they’re good at, setting them achievable goals and targets; helping children to learn through their own experiences; reflective listening and giving the children confidence and positivity through love and affection. If a child is not confident they may find it hard to interact with other children, have a negative outlook on life, be less motivated and have behavioural problems. Overall, if a child lacks confidence, self-esteem and resilience their health and well-being will be hindered.
Bandura’s Social Learning Theory demonstrates “how children are socialized to accept the standards and values of their society.” (Grusec, 1992, p. 785). While Bandura’s empirical contribution to our understanding of human development is extremely significant, there are not only strengths, but also weaknesses associated with SLT. I see it as a clear strength that the social learning theory has been well researched, documented and can be clearly observed in a scientific and objective mater. Bandura’s studies (1961, 1971), amongst others, clearly show the process of children learning through observation and imitating the behavior of their models. Being a mother of two sons and teaching kindergarten children, I witness children’s observational learning on a daily base.
Observation is the formal term for one of the most important aspects of day-today professional practice when working with children and young people. It is how we find out the specific needs of individual children by carefully looking, listening and noting the activities of a child/young person or group of children or young people. Observation allows us to see a pupil as an individual; this is important for every child or young person in whatever setting but even more important in large group settings. Observations should be both formal (planned) but much of it will be informal (spontaneous) carried out as you work with pupils. Without observation, overall planning would simply be based on what we felt was important, fun or interesting (or all three) but it might not necessarily meet the needs of the children and young people in our care.
The 12 characteristics that she talks about are: passion, perserverence, willingness to take risks, pragmatism, patience, flexibility, respect, creativity, authenticity, love of learning, high energy, and sense of humor. Passion is very important when wanting to be an early childhood educator, possibly more so than anyother profession. While it is important to love what you are doing an any job, so that you want to keep doing and excelling at a job, it is very important with early childhood educating since you are working with young impressionable children, and helping to shape their learning path and outlook on life. If you don 't love working with the young children it will come across to everyone around and be very discouraging to the young children your are teaching. A love for learning is also very important when being an early childood professional.
STANDARD: 6 TEACHERS Artifact: Special Learning Opportunity workshop Experience from child Dev. 143; Science, and Math for Young children I chose this artifact because this Standard is about the important teacher should be training to be up date of the new discoveries in Early Childhood Development to offer a high quality education. I learned from this artifact that workshops are helpful to educator and not educator, where the purpose is to teach the children by encourage and guide them to explore the world.
It is very important to listen to the child even though it doesn 't make sense because that 's how you are building confidence and self esteem in him or her which will help him later with other peers. Developing healthy and effective relationships with children means they feel consent
Also, always learn from the other because you can have more knowledge can be received. Always respect to other professionals, and try to maintain a good atmosphere when having joint work. Last but not least, it is important to interact and collaborate between multi-disciplinary and try to keep children and the families on the spot and aware their needs and work together as a team to provide the best support for them in the early childhood education settings. And remember the main benefit and purpose of working in a multi-disciplinary working, must be better outcomes for children and the families. Multi-disciplinary together break down their worries and achieve their requirement as much as a professional
Play is a ubiquitous phenomenon where children learn about the constantly-changing world (Elkind, 2004). Teachers and families frequently have different perspectives on the value of play. Early childhood educators believe that “play is a child’s work” yet there are still parents who have the impression that play in the curriculum have no learning objectives but to become a time-filler and are therefore, meaningless (Ng, 2012). There is a plethora of research done on the social, cognitive, emotional, and language benefits of play. Play is so essential that the United Nations High Commission on Human Rights (1989) recognized play as a fundamental right of every child.
The Hub Childline Foundations gave me lots of good experience and good memories even though there are many facing problems come to me sometimes, but that makes me learn to resolve riddle and grow up because in daily life of mine didn’t happen that much. In addition, there is one of children that just started entering normal school with taking care by youth worker and a little bit helping of us by teaching him English, so I and my volunteering friends really expect these children to have great future as
Patience is key to babysitting, because if I don’t have that characteristic then I am likely to explode and cause emotional or physical damage to a child. As a result of this tremendous volunteer service, I have learned that I am a role model to many children. When I babysit, they watch how I act and talk so I want to set the best example. Due to the children constantly watching me, I know what words and actions are wrong to use in any situation. The children have taught me how to be a better person, along with me teaching them how to grow up to be an outstanding individual.
The documentation could be presented through children’s conversation, photos and work samples. The author’s ideas resemble my idea about planning for young children. My plan can be accomplished by identifying children’s developmental level, interest and competencies. Then paying attention to their questions or comments. After
