Previously I thought a teacher only needed to know if the child was developing correctly and all student where treated equally. Although there are still some of this in play I have now taken a different approach. One of the interesting issue I learnt from this week was Development Appropriate Practice. Using knowledge about a child development, abilities, development of key milestones to create a plan that is suitable for the age and stage of their development. Understanding what is culturally and socially acceptable as well as individual appropriateness are just as important. Children are individual and unique this approach considers the individual child to allow them to enjoy their learning. Development Appropriate Practice creates effective
I learn that it is most important to focus on children when in the classroom. I relax in my work by clean up in this class. Always be available to support children and maintain an overview of what is happening throughout the program. I’m aware that I can’t leave children unsupervised and can be somewhere that have one of the teacher staff can supervise me and the group. I show initiative to assist the teacher and children during activities or transitions. Through implement activities in this classroom, I observed that children have capacity to use materials in variety of ways to learn and explore base on their experiences and interests. Even though I have planned my activity and image how children might approach to the materials, I restrain instructions and let children express how they play and learn. I stay beside to observe and assist when children needed. It is treasure to see how children excited to learn and be creative. In the classroom, I’m sensitive to individual differences and abilities. I show patience and understanding with children in conflict, and support children independent problem
Explain the reasons why children and young people’s development may not follow the expected pattern:
I know that creativity and the art is very important material for children to learn at a early age. Also in the creativity and art area they are able to figure out different problem and then are able to solve them. In the art area it can help boost their child self confidence and self esteem while in the classroom. One way I will suggestion to the families and caregivers is to make sure that their activities are age appropriate. The second suggestion I will make sure that they have enough room to explore and developing their gross motor skils.The third suggestion I will make to the families and caregivers is to let the children dance around the room this is developing their gross motor skills.The frouth suggestion I will make is
It is important that when practitioners create the indoor environment they take into account of the children and young people’s interest, age and their individual needs. This will help the child to feel valued when going into the setting. The practitioner can plan activities within the environment as this can help a child to learn new skills. A practitioner can do this by using the indoor or outdoor environment, this could be by allowing the child to go on bikes. This will help the child to develop their physical development without them knowing and using play. Another example is allowing the child to explore the outdoor setting by hiding different objects. This will allow the child to play and learn at the same time. It is important that in the setting the environment.
EYE37WB-2.1 Describe areas of learning and development within the current framework which relate to school readiness.
Babies are born with an innate ability to learn and their brain to develop after birth. The neural pathways of a human’s brain are built based on their early experience in the world. A baby’s world is based on how they are treated by people in it therefore if the environment is scary then the baby will be reluctant to explore, as demonstrated n Bowlby’s and Ainsworth’s attachment theory. The brain and body become wired enough to understand what is safe and what should be feared.
The Week 4 assignments are addressed on how to use the observational tools in order to evaluate the development and create the activities that promote young children 's development. For example, assignment 4.3 Running Record is one of useful observational tools that educators can use. It requires sensitive observation and writing skills in order to collect detailed information. By using the running record, educator can use the data to evaluate the development of the child and create helpful activities that will help the development of the child.
Each year, more and more students are coming to college to study. Colleges require some student to take developmental courses before students take their major class because colleges think these students may do not have enough basic knowledge to handle the major class. In Montgomery College, most students have to take developmental courses in the first semester. After that, these students are allowed to take their majors. However, not every student who took the developmental courses gets success in their majors. One research shows that around 60 percent of community college students have to take developmental courses, but only one third of the student completed their major class in six years (Bailey, Jeong, & Cho, 2010). Therefore, some students think developmental education is useless and a wasting of their time. There are three different reasons why developmental courses are not targeted, efficient and have short-term effects.

Greeting Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board Members, it has been brought to my attention that the board has approved a new state-mandated, textbook-based curriculum to be implemented in the kindergarten classrooms. As the parent of a child that will be entering kindergarten in the fall, this decision causes me great concern. It appears that your decision was reached without considering what would be best for the child. Highly qualified teachers are aware of the importance of promoting the optimal learning and developing of young children, and this can be achieved through Developmentally Appropriate Practices. Developmentally Appropriate Practices are the “best practices” that meets the needs of each child on their individual developmental
Cognition is a process where different aspects of the mind are working together that lead to knowledge. Piaget’s cognitive development theory is based on stages that children go through as they grow that lead them to actively learn new information. Cognitive change occurs with schemes that children and adults go through to make sense of what is happening around them. The change that occurs is activity based when the child is young and later in life correlates to mental thinking. Piaget’s stages of cognitive development start from birth to adulthood and it begins with the sensorimotor stage, a child from birth to the age of 2 years old learns and thinks by doing and figuring out how something works. The second stage is the preoperational stage and in this stage children from ages 2 through 7 years are developing their language and they do pretend play (Berk, 2005, p.20). Concrete operational is the third stage and children ages 7 to 11 years old lack abstract but have more logic than they did when they were younger. The last stage is formal

Developmental Milestones are a set of functional skills which most of the children can perform at a certain age. Every milestone has a certain age limit. Some may achieve it early and some may do it a bit late as every child is unique. Premature babies achieve these milestones slightly late as compared to their healthier counterparts.
The 1800’s marked the foundation of modern era studies of child development. Prior, children were viewed as inherently evil (original sin view) and at some point as “a blank blanket” that inherits characteristics through child experiences (tabula rasa view) (Santrock, 2011). Comprehending child development is a pivotal aspect of Child and Youth Development (CYD). With an understanding of child development, Child and Youth Care (CYC) workers can improve their approaches to children. For the purpose of this essay, a child developmental theory will be referred to as an approach and development will be defined as “the pattern of movement or change that begins at conception and continues through the life span” (Santrock, 2011, pp.6).
