I feel that MSJC child development center demonstrated developmentally appropriate practices. Our text defines developmentally appropriate practice in three components, age appropriateness, individual appropriateness, and social and cultural responsiveness, page 6 of Beginning Essentials in Early Childhood Education, Gordon/ Brown, 2016. I observed the three and four-year-old classroom, half of my observation time was spent in the playground and the other half in the classroom. Per our text on (page 30) play is the primary context in which young children learn and grow. MSJC development center accommodates an appropriate environment for children to learn and grow through structured and unstructured play.
Based on my experience this lab, I feel that I need to further develop the skill of creativity in order to be able to interact with elementary aged students. Creativity is an important skill to have when creating a lesson plan or activities for the students to do. I want to make sure that when I do make the lesson plan that it is interesting to them and they will want to participate. 4. To make this both a better experience for me and the students at the elementary school it is important to consider how to communicate in a way that will help the students with diverse learning styles.
It needs to be stimulating, welcoming and comfort. A positive setting will set the tone for successful learning experiences.

In addition, basic skills such as asking a question, apologizing, learning to listen, and introducing yourself to others can be such as small skill that has a huge impact on helping children have success interpersonally. When teaching children social skills, a variety of teaching methods can be used such as direct instruction, modeling, rehearsal techniques, prompting, and reinforcement practices can be used (Kavale and Mostert, 2004). Another successful way to teach social skills is through peer-mediated instruction (Prater, Serna, and Nakamura, 1999) This gives children the change to work one on one with each other and cooperate together teaching them life skills as well as
The first three stages occur during early childhood and early school age years. The final stage occurs from junior years to the middle of adolescence. The first stage is the sensimotor stage which takes place between birth and two years of age. Little children use their senses and their motion in order to understand their environment thus this step is called sensorimotor stage. Infants use mainly physical actions like sucking, grasping, hitting, watching in order to learn about their surroundings.
OT therapists can evaluate kids abilities and help them grow to be developmentally appropriate for their age (Occupational Therapy). They know many ways to help children with their disabilities. They know how to specifically solve the child 's problem in many ways. OT’s know what tools they need to use to fix the child’s problem to make sure the child will show improvement. OT’s “believe child 's main job is playing and learning, and occupational therapists can evaluate kids ' skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities” (Occupational Therapy).

Assistive technology helps disabled children by assisting them with special devices that help them read, write, speak. Also, families and teachers are trained in order to help disabled

Repetition and multiple opportunities for learning are important for all children, so offering different activities for learning concepts and skills benefit all children, there is no negative impact when providing activities that support skills repeatedly. • What is the biggest challenge of assessing an infant or
Professionalism to an early childcare worker is being able to engage children appropriately while staying within the environmental and cultural boundaries set by their parents. Early childhood is a crucial area of development, where many social skills and basic motor functions are learned and retained. It is fundamental for any childcare worker to understand what is and is not acceptable behavior, and how to properly guide the child into appropriate mannerisms also knowing when and how to punish certain behaviors. (Maycie Southall, 2013). The worker must be knowledgeable on how children learn, and thereby be able to engage the child into developmental play by being able to incorporate motor skills and sensory stimulation into their education.

Practitioners need to plan different types of activities of the same topic to match the educational level of the children. In most schools children are spilt into groups to help teachers separate the planning to ensure that the correct level of work is being given to the children.
