Abstract Early childhood education (ECE) is a category of educational program which relates to the teaching of little children in their preschool years. It comprises of many activities and experiences designed to assist in the cognitive and social development of preschoolers before they start elementary school. In most early childhood programs and schools, technology will be part of the learning background of the future. To make sure this new technology is used effectively, we must assure that teachers are fully trained and supported. In this paper, theoretical perspectives of child development are discussed with the basic elements of learning program.

In the article, Developing a Classroom Management Plan Using a Tiered Approach, Sayeski describes a classroom management plan by using the response-to intervention method. This method allows teachers to work with students who need extra help or attention in certain areas including behavioral.

Response to Intervention (RTI): A Guide for Family Members and Staff Developed for use in k-5 schools Purpose: This guide will outline the “what”, “where”, “who”, “why”, and “how”s of RTI. What is Response to Intervention (RTI)? Response to Intervention (RTI) is an educational model, designed for use in both general education and special education,to advance educational outcomes for all students and aids struggling students by focusing on how students respond to individualized intervention. RTI relies on early identification to support students academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs by targeting instruction interventions, at increasing levels of intensity, as soon as those needs become apparent. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students.
1.0 Introduction According to the National Preschool Curriculum (2003), Preschool defined as preparation before primary education primary school level. Experience of schooling and effective learning, meaningful and satisfying can supply them with the skills, confidence and a positive attitude in preparation for formal schooling and lifelong education.

Preschool education is very important to children among 4 to 6 years because it is a bridge to children from home to school, which will proceed to formal education. In addition, an important early experience will be acquired
Piaget and Maslow: Teaching the whole child Exceptional educators keep their fingers on the pulse of what their students need, in order to teach them effectively. Examining Piaget and Maslow’s theories, and applying them to the classroom will facilitate achieving this goal. Considering Piaget’s focus on development, and Maslow’s prioritization of human needs, one can integrate these ideas into classrooms and lesson plans that are optimized for student success. Piaget’s theory of cognitive development Piaget asserts, children are born with inherited scripts, called schema, these schema are building blocks for cognitive development. As a child grows, he acquires more of these building blocks; moreover, these building blocks become more complex as the child progresses through different stages in development (Huitt, Hummel 2003).
Effective treatment required case formulation after assessment, followed by proposed intervention. Using genograms to illustrate the family dynamics, case formulations are illustrated particular to Ann, drawing on the models of biopsychosocial formulation (Ross 2000) and cognitive behavioural formulation (Persons and Tompkins 2007). Generic skills are to be blended with creative strategies such as art, play, storytelling that is most effective for the developmental stage the child is in. Therapy must widen to psychoeducate and empower the family members, particularly the parents to provide a healthy environment for child
As mentioned earlier, the collaboration of the parents, teachers, and therapists is still essential to maximize the effectiveness of the therapy and treatment. Common cases treated by occupational therapists in school are gross motor and fine motor skills, visual-motor integration and visual-perceptual skills. Children having difficulties in those skills would probably be having difficulties in reading, writing, mathematics, manipulation of tools, physical education, independence, and social integration. As proven by Palisano in 1989, children of ages six to nine years of age with those difficulties were able to improve on those skills with the help of occupational therapy
The strategy where stated to intervene at two levels, the policy level and the community level aiming to review existing policies and legal documents by developing new ideas as well as proper approaching the community through comprehensive education and proper leadership skills. One expected output of the framework is delivering of a comprehensive age appropriate information and education for adolescent and young people. Action plans involves workshop programs for counsellors and primary/secondary school teachers, development trainings for social workers and peer-educators, integrated life skills educations of teenage pregnancy issues on curriculum school syllabus and designing comprehensive national behavior and social change communications. This strategy framework is unique because it deals with children, aiming to assist every individual on the transition period from childhood to adolescence. Investing on workshop training developments for teachers and counsellors is an important move as well because mentors are professionally cultivated with evidence base to be a competent confident therapist in whatever situation
