Being a pre-service training educator, specific goals and objectives should be set to achieve educator’s own educational philosophy. The Educational philosophy is an individual statement of educators’ guiding principles about the education-related issues, which helps to guide when drawing up curricula and structuring classroom discussions for children. Every educator should have their unique set of principles and ideas to affect students’ performance. I strongly believe that early childhood education is to help children to achieve whole person development which including cognitive, physical, mental and social aspects. Children’s programs should be based on children’s needs and interests as they are going to grow, develop and mature in educators’
They are considering as the activities of daily living. We expected from children develop independence in these as they mature. According to the article "Developmentally Appropriate Practice – Adaptive/Self-Help Skills, 2010" Establishment of adaptive skills, such as dressing, feeding, or personal hygiene consider as a large part of the young child’s daily routine. If the child has problem in motor skills development, self care may be impacted as well. Motor movements are prerequisite skills that are also necessary for many self care tasks.
Emotion is vital in education because it controls attention of learners which in turn drives learning and memory. However, it has been seen that emotion are rarely integrated comfortably into the core curriculum and classroom. It is important to take into consideration that with physical and cognitive development, every learner grows throughout phases of emotional development. This is why, John Dewey claim that “education of the whole child” is crucial. The holistic approach focuses on the importance of understanding and dealing with all social issues.
Having the right knowledge, skills and experience in understanding how children or young people develop are very important tools for early years practitioners. We must put to mind that each child born into this world is unique. Children are born with different characters, their personalities and behaviours are formed and influenced by a variety of factors. These factors may affect their ways of interacting with the environment and community or setting in which they live in. Most of the time, adults mainly focus on the physical development of a child and so quick to base their conclusions or judgement on the physical skills.

All these statements and findings illustrate that parental guidance does have a significance and influential role in a child’s life. Thus, the researchers would like to conduct this study in order to comprehend how parental guidance is a key concept that influences the development of their children. Rationale Parents, according to Dr. Myers (1999), play an influential part in how a child grows up to be; they are to provide encouragement, support and access to activities that enable the child to master key developmental tasks. With this, the researchers seek to find out how parental guidance affects the child 's personality, social behavior, academic performance and
According to Santer and Griffiths (2007), educators will be able to detect the children’s interest, the duration, patterns, rhythms of play and play partners. Through this, planning for suitable experiences to scaffold children’s learning and development can occur easily. Scaffolding refers to assisting the child to obtain competence and comprehension. This will eventually aid the child to move to a higher level of functioning (Berg & Winsler as cited in Jacobs, 2001). It is especially important to scaffold children’s cognitive and social development by preparing the physical environment where they can engage in the experiences that encourage exploration, interest and learning (Zurek, Torquati & Acar, 2013).
The role of an early childhood educator is greatly complex and comes with many challenges. Educators play a crucial role in a student’s early learning years, so it is important that people who are wanting to become early childhood educators know what the profession entails. The roles that they take on continue to change, and it is in the best interest of the teacher and the students if the educator stays up to date on them. In order to be an effective teacher, the educator must understand the complexity of these roles and center their teaching around it. While these standards play a heavy part in early childhood education, the educator has the challenging task of bringing them to life and creating a safe place of learning and growth for young
The child’s experiences play an important role in the child’s acquisition of literacy and language. As from birth the child start to interact within the environment around him/her. Before a child learns how to read, write or talk, the child starts to engage in a different form of communication by using body gestures, expressions such as crying and other ways. The attainment of speech communication and literacy development is essential in determining the child’s cognitive and social growth. Therefore, children need to experience developmentally appropriate
The best way to learn about your child’s learning style is to observe what he or she is doing. Actions, interests, and preferences will provide information about how he or she is processing information If your child has developmental delays, you may find that you often focus on what your child isn’t yet doing. Instead, try to focus on his strengths and favorite activities. All children, even the most challenged, have interests and preferences. Identifying these helps increase a child’s motivation for learning How Can You Support Your Child’s Learning Style?
