Children go through many transitions, so it is important that the children’s key person is meeting their individual needs. They should always be positive and welcoming. When aiming to meet children’s individual needs, practitioners must regard every child as unique. Likewise, the practitioner must acknowledge that attachment is important for a child’s emotional well-being during transitions, therefore they must ensure that the child feels a sense of acceptance, love and respect. Similarly, if possible, a transition should be thoughtfully planned and organised so that the child will receive the appropriate amount of support and are able to do it at their own pace.
Knowing how the different areas of development are dependent on each other helps us to better understand the holistic development of the child. Some of the ways which social and emotional development affect other areas of development are: Having strong gross motor and fine motor skills can help a child to interact and build relationships. Children build relationships and start friendships through play. Some of the skills that can help a child in these situations are running and jumping. Children also need certain skills to adapt to their social environment.
• How children use play to develop these skills Personal , social and emotion development This area focuses on how well the child has developed in confidence and how they relate with other children in a large group. Children who haven’t yet matured enough in this area will encounter personal and social hiccups in a school setting.This area comes as a barometer of how well they are able to manage their feelings. Physical development This area focuses on the physical well-being of a child and how well they respond to their day to day needs. Children will need to fend for themselves in healthy living and some basic self-care needs. Their fine motor skills will help them to be effective when holding a pen for writing or to carry some fragile equipments .
It is important that children are able to receive holistic care while in a play environment, both inside and outside. Some of the principles which would apply to both indoor and outdoor play include a child centred practice, ensuring the child 's welfare and safety, promoting a child 's rights, and enabling a child to reach their full potential. It is important that we provide a child centred practice, as it promotes a child 's learning and development through play. By having a child centred approach, we should support the children giving them guidance, but to allow the opportunities for them to learn independently, instead of taking over an activity and showing them. It encourages us as practitioners, to encourage children to explore and to make their own
It is important that people have a positive attitude when providing the correct care for children and young people who have disabilities in order to meet their specific needs and to make sure they are able to have the opportunity to learn new skills, for example this can be by learning how to do sign language if they have or know people who may have a hearing impairment. It is important that we treat people who have disabilities as we would any other person we come in contact with so that they are treated equally and fairly. It will also teach the
Children learn language skills by interacting with the immediate environment and training or simple structural changes can improve language skills of children (Bouchard & Gilles, 2011). The early education given in early childhood shapes foundation of the life and helps mental and academic development of child. Throughout the play and education, children learn social skills along with how to deal with others and develop their own values (Webster-Stratton & Reid, 2010). Therefore, this paper, with the purpose of developing the children’s future, discusses why it is very essential to recognize the importance of early childhood education, how it effects to person 's life and how it can be developed. 2.Disscussion of findings 2.1.
In Comparison, Montessori also believed that a child is a spiritual being and therefore should be educated as a whole – in an intellectual and spiritual way. Montessori’s philosophy also focused on the fact that each child is unique with natural eagerness and motivation to learn during its sensitive period. Montessori also believed that children should have the freedom of choice in everything they do, unlike Steiner’s preschools where the choice is divided between the students and the teacher, i.e. Child is the one that chooses what is going to be done during free play time but then it is up to the teacher to choose what is going to be done during circle time. In contrast to Steiner, Montessori did not think of play as an important aspect of learning.
Resilience studies popularly began with children affected by trauma and ascertaining what are the “protective factors” that play a role in their lives riddled with troubles and trauma, allowing them to have normal lives at the least, and successful careers at the most. Richardson defines resilience as "the process of coping with adversity, change or opportunity in a manner that result in the identification, fortification and enrichment of resilient qualities or protective factors." Research now shows that resilience is the result of individuals being able to interact with their environments and the processes that either promote well-being or protect them against the
Child Well-being When talking about child well-being it is important that we take the child as a whole into consideration. Children and young people should be healthy, respected, active, nurtured, given responsibilities, be included, be listened to and be safe from harm and be supported in achieving their maximum potential Moore, K.A., (1997). Psychological well-being and physical well-being are the two main elements of child well-being. We examine many aspects of the child’s life such as social developments and behaviour, psychological and developmental health, cognitive development and educational achievement etc Moore, K.A., (1997). Aistear created The Early Childhood Curriculum framework which focused on Child well-being.
A child is born with purity and innocence. Nurturing child is a crucial in every child’s life and if given proper care and attention in right way after that child grows in constructive manner. Children show good performance when children’s surrounding environment is positive and supportive towards them. Child’s physical, psychological, moral and spiritual development builds them competent of become conscious to understand their capabilities. On the other side, detrimental environment, lack of basic needs, poor parenting supervision, other factors may turn a child to a delinquent i.e.a juvenile delinquent.
When attachment is formed with a loving caregiver or parent who is able to provide support, love, and guidance along with the basic human needs, attachment can be reinforced and healthy (VBH). Educating children and parents-to-be of consequences of ineffective parenting might reduce the incidence of RAD in children (Lehman & Jegtvig, 2004). Children with RAD are not completely lost with their ability to form attachments, those who have been diagnosed and seek treatment early with hopeful learn to be able to recognize and manage their behaviors and feeling as well as creating healthy relationship in their future. It is important to first get the child in a safe house with caregivers who genuinely care about them and are willing to work on developing positive interactions with the child. By using treatment methods like dyadic developmental therapy, integrative play therapy, and parent skills training are all credible techniques to help build trust and attachment.
• What are the strengths of this assessment tool? This assessment allows for a more individualized approach to planning for specific children, while providing support to all. Using observation and anecdotal assessments provides multiple opportunities to view children learning and provides a more realistic view of their learning than an assessment, which only allows for right or wrong answers. • What are the weaknesses of this assessment tool? It is critical that observations be free of bias and objective, a skill that needs to be developed and can be a challenge for some teachers.
The practitioners will find is easier to plan activities once they have an idea of each child 's potential as activities will then be planned to improve their weaker skills. When observations are being carried out, it will give the practitioner an idea of what interests the children, the practitioner will put this into consideration as activities will be planned around the interests of the child for them to improve their
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
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
