Whilst recognising there is an array of features as to why the development of social and emotional competence is important for young children, these include; social awareness, integration of development domain, the foundation for positive mental health, responsible decision making, self-esteem, and self-management. Reflecting on the purpose of the assignment I am going to be focusing on three key features; self-awareness, building positive relationships, and early school success, looking at the ways in which they impact a young child and how they can be supported by practice. Social and emotional competence is important in both long and short outcomes in a young child’s development. Social competence is identified as the ability to integrate
Children could be bullied because they are different this will have a detrimental effect on their self-esteem and self-confidence and will also affect their learning and development. There are different forms of disabilities and they all affect people different ways for example a learning disability or a physical disability. An autistic child has a developmental Disability and this affects the way in we communicate and relate to other people and the world. A child or young person may find it hard to understand facial expressions or tone of voice. They could feel lonely or cut off from others, they may avoid social interaction.
Introduction Statement of the Problem The preschool years are a key developmental period in which skills essential for later academic and social success are acquired and honed. It is not surprising, therefore, that school psychologists and educators are increasingly focusing on this developmental period to establish intervention programs that enhance social and emotional competence. The development of social and emotional competence is an important milestone for preschool children, as such children who are socially and emotionally competent in preschool are more likely to enjoy success in academic and social areas in the future. Therefore, bear in mind the importance that assessments in early childhood include measures designed to monitor
Speech and language functions are important components in children’s development. Children’s ability to talk and communicate with their parents and friends influences their social adaptation (Rosselli et al., 2014). Communication is the key element necessary for interaction

According to Ainsworth, “attachment refers to an affectional tie that one person forms to another specific individual… attachment is thus discriminating and specific” (Salande & Hawkins, 2016).
This theory is relevant to the thesis because it shows that adolescents are already in a period of importance, and they want to fit in with society. Gender roles is an important component when forming identities among adolescents because society deems them acceptable so they try and follow these cultural norms. Some may not understand a correct balance of both female and male traits and this leads to lower self-esteem (Koopman
Vygotsky placed a greater emphasis on how social factors influence development, he stressed the essential role that social interactions play in cognitive development. These five theories can be very useful when teaching in the classroom. These theories are an organized set of principles explaining how individuals acquire, retain and recall knowledge. They can be used as guidelines to help select instructional tools to promote
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.
According to Dowling (2009) Personal development is based upon children’s obtainment of knowledge, individual personal skills, their ability to think, and the way in which they perceive themselves. National Strategies (2008, P5) Social development is how we come to understand ourselves in relation to others, how we make friends, understand the rules of society and behave towards others”.

It is vital that young children start the process of PSED in order for them to be able to progress and succeed as young persons. Developing these different qualities of their personality and charismas
The EYFS believes that if a child has developed the three main aspects, the rest will develop alongside these. Personal factors that can affect a child’s learning and development include their role models, the encouragement they are given, their resources and expectations. These are all based around their environment and their relationships with primary carers. External factors that can affect a child’s learning and development include the monitoring of their development, their opportunities, the resources and services they have access to, the influence of others, their consistency in education and ill health. Atypical development can impact a child’s communication development, physical development and their communication development.
And 3. What are some important features of young children’s education? Piaget’s theory and Vygotsky’s theory and their difference of opinions were interesting to compare. Piaget’s theory that children develop their thinking and understanding through their actions with the physical world compared to Vygotsky’s theory that children develop their thinking and understanding through their social experiences I think social experiences have a higher influencing factor on a child’s development. “Buds” and “Flowers” Vygotsky referred to these two items as how children develop by having interaction
