(1993) developed a person-environment fit theory of school engagement. This model incorporates both the individual and the environment in which the child is situated. It focuses on the contribution of the educational environment to psychosocial and academic adjustment of children. Another example of such work was by Goodenow (1993). Goodenow developed a theoretical framework called “psychological membership” which refers to one’s sense of caring, support, and acceptance in the school environment.
In the contemporary times, great importance is given to the significance of early years of a child’s life. It is widely acknowledged now-a-days that the early childhood years are a predominantly receptive phase in the developmental process. This stage is responsible to lay a foundation in early days and later years for cognitive functioning, learning process, physical wellbeing, and self-regulatory capacities in both personal and social lives. In simple words, “the period from birth to age 5 is one of opportunity and vulnerability for healthy physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development” (Karoly, Kilburn & Cannon, 2005). However, it is also a fact that many children go through several stressors during their developmental years due to which their healthy development may be impaired.

Childhood development is defined as the psychical, emotional, social and cognitive development of the child from the moment of birth till the entrance of adulthood. This process includes the four different stages, infant at an age between 0-2 years, toddler at an age between 2-6 years, child at an age between 6-12 years, and adolescent at an age between 12-18 years. Additionally, John Bowlby argues it is the two first stages, infant and toddler, of life that influences the most upon the social relationships in the future.

Research into how children think and learn has suggested that children absorb the most information while they are participating in activities which are intentional teaching methods. Taking into consideration previous knowledge of the children’s cognitive development milestones and what strategies work best for teaching at certain ages or year levels has helped this resource to be accurate and well suited to year one students and is also useful for teachers to utilize in a classroom setting. This resource was created based on the current Australian Curriculum, The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and cognitive developmental milestones. Children using this resource will improve knowledge on shapes and learn how to explain the differences of various shapes; children may also find that this resource may improve development for counting and reading as they are also main components. Supporting the progress of learning shapes is vital for children as this is a skill they will use as children all the way through to

As part of my Social Work training I was instructed to conduct 1x6 observation on a child between 0-5 using the Tavistock model. The Tavistock model originally developed by Ester Bick in (1964) was to enhance professional understanding of the attachment built between children and their families, their cognitive, emotion and physical development (Le Riche & Tanner, 2002). Enhancing the knowledge and skills of practitioner that work with difficult and complex cases which are prevalent in social work. Therefore, conduction these observations was a necessary part of my professional development in readiness for practice (Professional Capability Framework 1; British Association of Social Work, 2012).
