It takes place under the supervision of educators/teachers, but learners may also educate themselves. It can be either, or both, formal and informal. However, early childhood education is an important aspect of general education. It relates to the training of young children both at home and school, until the age of around 8 years (Dewey, 1916). Infant and toddler education is a subset of early childhood education.
Early Childhood Education : Role of Technology Abstract Early childhood education (ECE) is a type of educational program which relates to the teaching of young children in their preschool years. It consists 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.
Therefore, modern early childhood education will closely contact between family education and school education, so parents can master certain means of early childhood education and teach their children in family education, to ensure the smooth progress in early childhood education work. For example: a kindergarten often design some parent-child

"Playing and learning" is an overall concept that is applied in the approach to teaching preschool teacher.

Children play and at the same time they benefit from learning the results of the game in accordance with the instincts of children in terms of their nature play is how they learn (Bustam Banzul 2004; Putri Zabariah
She observed in young children the situation she called absorbent mind. Children learn from their everyday surroundings. ”The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the period of birth to age six”. She studied that between conception to age four, 50% of mature intelligence is developed and from ages four to eight 30% is developed. In Montessori schools the teacher in the classroom allows every child to pick activities which interest them [Montessori country school, 2017].
The educational system has created a massive issue for our children in its every mechanism. The starting point for an accurate description of the issue can be shown by the fact that school now is more restrictive than most adults’ workplaces, which will not help foster the behaviors and personalities necessary to sustain any sort of flow in their future environments (Peter Gray, School is a Prison and Damaging Our Kids). The fact that children are being hindered rather than prepared for
Parental involvement through active participation in supporting children during their school activities as well as working closely with their children at home was the emphasis on this article. They also mentioned that parents should take part in workshop trainings conducted by schools, to learn, construct and practice and then apply it onto their children. In another article, it also mentioned that parents need to be given educational support so that they can help in their children’s learning (Powell, 2003). According to the family system theory, where it states the use of messages and rules to shape members, it shows that as educators, we can make a difference by sharing information and letting parents know that they are capable of their child’s learning development (Morgaine,
The thematic approach has been a big part of education within primary schools for many years. It first began to increase in popularity during the 60’s due to recommendations from the Plowden Report (1967) Within the report, it emphasized that children learn better from being able to find out the information for themselves, rather than being taught it and given the information by the teacher. It involves integrating different subjects together and linking them by one theme or topic, i.e. chocolate. A theme is chosen for a period of time, normally a term, and the teacher develops lesson plans and activities based around the topic.
Communications is an intricate process that involves the receiving and giving of information in several different ways. This is usually split into written, verbal and non-verbal forms. As HLTA, developing communications skills is fundamental to advancing the learning of children whether we are working with individuals, groups or the whole class. Most of the work undertaken as a HLTA is with individuals or small groups. The introduction of the five year strategy for children and learners in 2004, focused on adapting education to the needs of individual children or young people under the direction of the class teacher.
