Analysis of and reflection on my learning from the experiences of observing a child under the age of 5 in their day care environment, making use of literature on observation in social work and the development of reflective practice This reflection is based on Gibbs’ (1998) reflective cycle. Refection is an important process in social work as it provides a foundation for future accomplishment.
