1. Introduction Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure and when their individual needs are met. Leaders, teachers and managers need to make every effort to ensure that all needs of children are fulfilled and they make good progress from birth throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). To achieve this goal, continues observations, recordings and assessments are needed to set up the appropriate plans and actions to enhance children’s learning and development (EYFS, 2012). Observation could enable caregivers to pay more attention towards the child instead of being distracted by the routine teaching practices.
How to apply Cognitive Theory in real world teaching It is very important to carefully assess the children’s current stage of cognitive development. With the help of this, teacher can arrange the lesson and tasks according to their development level.
In relation to the title, children with additional needs may benefit from Early Support; EYPs can help the parents/carers to decide the best route for their child and plan the best support for the child. This leads the parents/carers to not only work in partnership with the EYPs but also with other professionals in order to give their child the best support for them to develop. According to ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ , “Providing early help is more effective in promoting the welfare of children than reacting later. Early help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from the foundation years through to the teenage years.” Through working in partnership the EYPs can give the child the best support they need in order to thrive in their learning and
THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION IN THE USA 1.Introduction Early childhood is an essential stage of life in terms of a child 's physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Growth of mental and physical abilities progress at an amazing rate and a very high proportion of learning takes place from birth to age six. It is a time when children particularly need high quality personal care and learning experiences. Approximately 60 to 70 percent of preschool-age children in the USA attend an early childhood program or child care program out of the home, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Promoting Individuality Many school have different way to teaching children. A lot of research had be conducted to find the best way to teach. Most research will agree that self directed learning and play are the best way children learn. According to Dorothy W. Hewes, who wrote an article on her philosophy behind teaching children, there need to be a balance of self-directed learning and memorization.
As many would guess education is likely the main thing that someone who hires an early childhood professional looks at. This along with someones work background are very important parts to hiring an early childhood professional. Although these are very important, there are many other very important things that are looked for when hiring an early childhood professional. In the article “12 Characteristics of Effective Early Childhood Teacher”, on NAEYC.org, Laura J. Colker talks about what makes a good early childhood educator.
Theme B: Review on the Impact of Social Constructivism for Pre-school Education. Early childhood education generally means an education before the child start of formal schooling or before the age they required to attend the school. It is crucial stage of life in development the physical, intellectual, emotional and social lifestyle of the children. For the basic education method the approach must base on their prior knowledge and practice is called “constructivism”. Social constructivism is the one of the theories of learning and pedagogy that had the utmost impact on tutoring and curriculum design because they seem to be the most conducive to integration into current educational approaches.
But, among all the above factors, the teacher has the most important role for efficient and quality learning. Markley (2011) stated that Good and qualified teachers are essential for efficient functioning of educational systems and for enhancing the quality of learning. A good teacher and actions to be taken on his part in the classroom play a vital role in provoking effective and efficient learning on the part of the students. Parents trust their children to be taught and educated at school, to be hoped that they will become good and qualified human beings. A teacher takes an important role in motivating the students to get their success in their life.
It is the key to our development because it makes us who we are and how we’ll be when we get older. I think that if a child is raised to treat people respectfully and knows what’s bad and good, they won’t have these bad tendencies. When you look at a baby, you do not see them as evil beings. Babies follow the people around them. They grab information from their surroundings.
Understanding on how child can develop and way of how to ensure their development was healthy is the most vital things, it is important as parents, educators and society to know the potential of children in order to shape them for the future and where exactly determined how children ends up when they grow up. Many have struggled in order to develop certain theory on how was development of children occurs and how to improve from time to time, hence the study of children development always on going to explore their proponents, area of development and strength, and this will work the best in helping development well. Physical developmental theory is one of theory that has been develop and focus on how children growth was study, paediatrician and
Also the practitioner would need to work in partnership with the parents at all times because the parents are the most important people in the child’s life and the parents of the children know their child better than you do. Also in a setting I attended before the practitioner and the mother of a chid liaised in order to put a sticker chart with rewards to help improve the child’s behaviour. The idea of the sticker chart came from B.F. Skinners theory which was positive and negative reinforcement: if children were rewarded for good behaviour then the behaviour is likely to continue. (Bruce T, Meggitt C, 2007). Communication would also be essential while planning for the children because if the child is involved with any other professional then the educational and milestone developments must be communicated between multi-agencies to ensure that everyone is aware of the stage the child is at in his/her learning.
It can be frustrating and perhaps confusing when choosing a childhood program for your child. There are so many aspects of a school to consider such as the environment, the teachers and staff, the children, the philosophy, and the community. As parents, you want to pick the perfect facility. A facility that you know will be the most beneficial and supportive for your child. Luckily, the NAEYC provides us with wonderful guidelines in order to guarantee that you are picking best program for children.
Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP) is important to understand prior to implementing creative activities in your classroom because from the reading I liked a few points on how young children develop and learn and what is known about effective early education. First, knowing what is expected at each stage of a young child 's development is important, and it informs decisions about the best practices. Another key factor is knowing exactly what is appropriate for each individual child. Watching children play can give important insight to their progress and ability.
I understand now how the developmental theories can introduce a clear understanding about the case conceptualization not only for the children, but also for the adults and the children 's future as well. As Adler-Tapia, R. (2012) stated that “The studies included here are about the overwhelming evidence that the earliest relationship not only has significant impact on the child health and development, but even the quality of the individuals future relationship” (p.39). As a future therapist, I need to look carefully to the child 's parent attachment dynamic to understand the child suffers and gain more information about the child which it could lead me to choose the right intervention. As Adler-Tapia, R. (2012) stated that “In psychotherapy, it is important for the therapist to assess the quality of the child 's attachment with parent. The parent 's attachment and trauma history will provide a great deal of information about the relationship between parent and child”
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. Having a
