Throughout the many years I have been teaching in the classroom, it has been my belief that every child deserves the right to the best education possible, in spite of their special needs. Special education is educating children with needs that expand the range of peers their age who are developing normally. While the needs of each student differs, the child deserves the best education with a focus on their immediate and future needs in a safe and nurturing environment. Special needs children have the ability to learn, to perform, and succeed. Although their placement may be different than that of their general education peers, every student with special needs has the right to be educated in the least restricted environment.
In today’s society, education is something that could definitely be improved for children. Teachers could improve the kind of guidance and structure that they provide for their children. Maria Montessori ,writer of Montessori’s Own Handbook, and Colin Powell , writer of Kids Need Structure, have devoted their lives trying to help reform education to be more beneficial for children. While Montessori and Powell both have an amazing passion for their purpose, they both have differing opinions of how this should happen. To begin, It is clear to readers that both Montessori and Powell have contradicting ideas about the role of the teacher in a child’s development.
• Meaningful Experiences – Family is the most meaningful & primary to a child. Healthy relationships with families assist caregivers in building strong relationships with children. • Individualization – Families are experts on their own children and provide crucial information, ranging from learning styles to sleeping patterns. Then caregiver can provide more attention when it required. • Culturally Appropriate Curriculum – A child’s home language and culture can play a significant role in the child’s cognitive and linguistic development.
In conclusion, having looked at the both side of coin there are advantages of both homeschooling and regular school. Parents stand their own ground for this issue. Without education people would not have high technology and urban development. So education is imperative tool for a brighter future. Parents should choose the right path for their
(Miller & Almon, 2009). Children can learn from the different activities that the curriculum provides that fit all the students. In addition, children have the choice to choose which activity they want to do, and they have the chance to talk or share their opinion. Moreover, these curriculums are necessary conditions for ensuring optimal growth and development of young
Authors Bianca Mgbemere and Rachel Telles have stated that authoritative parenting creates the healthiest potential environment throughout a child’s life, and allows them to cultivate skills such as self-sufficiency and time management. However, authoritative parenting is not the only favored parenting style, and many regards permissive as the best parental guideline when rearing children. The authoritative style of parenting is constructive to a child’s development and allows them to have a healthy environment while enabling the progression of self-efficiency and structure, but many consider the merits of authoritative parenting to be debatable. A strong communicative relationship between a child and a parent is necessary. According to the psychology department at Vanderbilt University, inductive, or authoritative parenting, surpasses the best “open communication style with [a] child.” Mgbemere and Telles state that “the ability to speak to [your] child without judgment and [rebuke]” is essential in any
So on a personal note it puts more emphasis on the necessity to invest in preschool education to young children so as to maximize their overall well-being. And I commend the parents of our preschooler for having the same vision because I truly trust that, behind a child’s success is a parent who first believed that his/her child can. As preschool can be rigorous nowadays, since the children are expected to learn certain skills to prepare them for elementary school. I still believe that play takes a vital role in the development of a child; and children are playful by nature to start with. If I may quote Maria Montessori, “Play is the work of the child.” Young children learn best through play and it cannot be downgraded when it comes to their (the children) holistic development.
Introduction I want to thank you for downloading the book “How To Find A Nanny” This book contains the basic steps and strategies on how one can find the suitable nanny for their kids, especially during those desperate moments when you have a lot going on and you need someone to help you to look out for your children when you are not around or busy to do so yourself. It is true what people say, that nannies are usually the best option if you need your kids to have a heart-to-heart relationship with their caretaker; also a good nanny will on a regular basis become just like another member of your family. As you begin this journey, it is valuable to understand that nannies are usually qualified in childcare; most of them usually have several years experience. Since this is their profession, most of the time they do their duty for longer hours than normal child minders. Good nannies tend to
The natural light, space, colour, recyclable materials, including plants and the children’s art displays are used to enhance the environment. Children learn more effectively when they are able to use a wide range of materials. The role of the teacher is to facilitate between the children’s current understanding and working towards their maximum potential by reviewing and guiding their own learning. Teachers work with children on problem solving, connecting them with resources, facilitating group discussions and developing new skills. Children’s learning is observed and documented by audio and visual recordings and by taking photographs of the children during the activities.
Aside from building positive relationships with and for children, Connolly et al. (2002) highlights the importance of working in partnership with families and the wider community in order to cover a broader range of inclusion. There is a wealth of evidence to support the claim that children do better when there is close partnership between home and early years setting (. Teamwork between teachers and families can be fostered by sharing feedback on children’s behaviours and their learning preference. The principle of communication between home and school informs the planning process, as without this link an inclusive approach is hindered.
