Preschool curriculums are programmed to help children achieve formal school readiness in all areas of academic and social learning.

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.
“Well-rounded” Education in different Countries “Well-rounded” education is always mentioned by the educators for children development in schools. According to the Education Bureau in Hong Kong (2013), “well-rounded” education includes moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic development. With using this concept for teaching, students can learn the knowledge from books and learn
Education is an international human right essential to the life of an individual and to a community, as it is believed that if children receive basic primary education, they will likely be literate and will have the basic social and life skills necessary to secure a job, to be an active member of a peaceful community, and to have a fulfilling life. Education provides opportunities for personal, social and academic development and is important for future employment and integration in society. School are one of the first places where children learn to relate and interact cooperatively with one another. It is often in relation to their peers that children begin to develop a perception of themselves and of the world around them. As such, a student’s
Daycares are efficient, friendly and allow the child to learn many things that they would not otherwise, most child care facilities have specific regulations so the children receive the best attention and support they need from the staff. Daycares are a perfect way to help parents with their busy schedules and let kids have fun as well. The child will also create great friendships and learn how to communicate with children their age. This will be their foundation and preparation for their school years. All in all, taking your child to daycare will help the child academically and socially.

Much research, strategy and policy on home-school relationships has focused on the relationship between parents and schools. This is particularly seen in the strong current focus on improving parental engagement in children’s learning, which is a significant factor in children’s educational achievement. Homeschooling lets your children to learn without the time limit and lets them to explore everything that they like, whenever they want, as
Family involvement was also found to be imperative to strengthening the skills of young children. The main focus of the findings center around the support a family of young students must have for the student to be successful. The more involvement an intervention method has with families, the more successful the outcome for young children. Early childhood classrooms which utilize an RTI model for intervention, “have the potential to optimize learning opportunities for all children” (Lieberman-Betz, Vail, & Chai, 2013, p. 65). These models also allow for greater inclusion of young children with special needs into preschool classrooms.
All effective practitioners reflect to ensure that they are providing a high standard practice to ensure that children are provided with the chance/opportunity to strive for the best education (achieve their best). Reflecting on your own practice could be beneficial to a practitioner within the setting as they would be developing a clearer vision in thinking creatively as a skill and also the practitioner would be able to get a better understanding of others in the setting. By having a more clear understanding on the children you are working with in the setting would also enable practitioners to meet the individual needs of the children and make adjustments to activities if needed or provide the children with an individual educational plan
Cooperative learning also creates self-confidence in each student by allowing them to be a part of a group and working together to create a common goal. - Direct instruction. With its structure, direct instruction can be one of the most powerful tools in providing instruction, for both children with and without disability. We use procedures that are grounded and systematic, providing sound teaching and learning principles. We ensure that our teachers are organized with the content needed to provide a cohesive learning environment.
Early childhood educators must differentiate instruction, build knowledge together, create multiple opportunities for learning, teach to all developmental domains, integrate content areas, and monitor children’s achievement (Brown, Feger, & Mowry, n. d.). Tools, techniques, and strategies must meet the readiness levels, interest, needs, and cultural identities of individual learners. When young children learn through developmentally appropriate practices they are enabled to connect previous experiences to new knowledge and make meaningful connections. DAP also helps learners meet challenging goals, build confidence and self-esteem, and encourages them to take on a positive approach to learning. The side-effects of non-DAP can result in behavior issues, failed classroom management, miseducation, failure of students reaching their academic potential, and grade
To be developmentally appropriate, teaching practices must be successful, especially in producing a favorable impression on children—they must promote to children’s ongoing development and learning. Children who are interested and engaged in the classroom activities and lessons learn more. By stimulating active interest and engagement, I guarantee that children will get the most out of the instructional opportunities demonstrated in the classroom. I present information using a variety of learning formats, including large and small groups, choice time (in interest areas), and routines. Routines such as eating snacks and transitioning from one activity to another are all possibly valuable learning situations if teachers use these activities as chances for one-on-one conversations with children or to support a learning objective through singing a song or reciting a rhyme.
