The rate of development is the speed of which a child develops but this can also vary a great deal in each child. For example one child may start walking unaided before their first birthday but another child may not start walking unaided until after their first birthday. It’s important to know the difference between the sequence and rate of development as it helps to meet the children’s individual needs. It helps you recognise if any children have special educational needs and helps you plan to make sure they are getting the help and support they may need.
By 8 months of age, object of permanence begin to emerge because infants begin to develop memory for objects that are not perceived (Myers, 2013). 1c. Piaget further explains that after object permanence emerged, children at 8 months start to develop stranger anxiety where they would often cry in front of strangers and reach for someone who is familiar to them (Myers, 2013). Both object permanence and stranger anxiety emerge around the same time because children are able to remember and build schemas. While Piaget’s cognitive theory consists of four stages (sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operational) that children go through as they grow, McCrink and Wynn proposed a different theory of cognitive development.
The EYFS framework sets out the legal requirements relating to the early learning goals, the educational programmes, and the assessment arrangement (in section 2) and the legal requirements relating to welfare- safeguarding and promoting children’s welfare, suitable people, suitable premises,, environment and equipment, organization and documentation(section 3). The early learning goals describe what a child should be able to do at the end of academic year, “establish expectation” that most children are expected to reach when a child reaches his/hers five. It provides a basis for planning throughout the EYFS. The educational programmes describe the support and teaching that the child requires to help him/her to achieve those learning goals. Some children will have exceeded these goals, but it depends on their individual needs.
For instance, one developmental milestone is learning to walk. Most children learn this skill or developmental milestone between the ages of 9 and 15 months. Milestones develop in a sequential fashion. This means that a child will need to develop some skills before he or she can develop new skills. For example, children must first learn to crawl and to pull up to a standing position before they are able to walk.
Unit Title: Understand child and young people’s development. Unit Number: CYP Core 3.1 Unit Reference: L/601/1693 1. Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth to 19 years. 1.2 Explain the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the difference is important. The sequence of development is a pattern in which a child develops from infancy, through childhood and into adulthood, these are usually categorized in two ways: personal factors: factors that are specific to a child such as: disabilty, health status, impairment, learning difficulty, bereavment etc.
Considering the work of key pioneers and current experts with links to child development theory. There are many theories about how children learn and develop. This area of study is called developmental psychology which covers subjects such as cognitive, language and emotional development. The research methods are based heavily on the on going assessments carried out by observing children over a period of time. Assessment is part of the process of understanding what children know, understand and can do so that future teaching steps can be appropriately planned.
Unit 51: Support the Creativity of Children and Young People 1.1 Benefits of creativity for the wellbeing of children and young people. In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) booklet, shows children and young people workers on how to improve the quality of care and education for children from birth to the end of their first year in school. In one part of the book it covers the areas of learning and one of the main ones out of five others is called Creative Development. In the EYFS booklet it says “Children’s creativity must be extended by the provision of support for their curiosity, exploration and play. They must be provided with opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings, for example, through a variety of art, music, movement, dance, imaginative and role-okay activities, mathematics, and design and technology’ Statutory Framework 2.17.
Infants and toddlers grow quickly, or should I say “in a blink of an eye”. Infants and Toddlers go through different types of stages during the developmental process. Infants and toddlers do not have the full ability to verbally express their feelings and thought. Therefore, infants and toddlers interact with the world through physical, cognitive, social, emotional and motor development. Jean Piaget best described the stages from birth to two years in what he called the sensorimotor stage.
“Kiddy Thinks” In “Kiddy Thinks”, Alison Gopnik discusses the stages of thinking abilities of babies and young children. Using examples from her personal experiences as a parent and her experiments as a developmental psychologist, she defines these stages and explains the learning processes that take place during them. Through process analysis, Gopnik develops her thesis that babies and young children use the same learning strategies as scientists. Gopnik explains the stages of cognitive development for children from birth to the age of 4 years old. At birth, babies already know they are similar to other people.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF EARLY SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT IN CHILDREN? Everybody is focusing on how early social development affects children. Psychologist made research and came up with a solution to prove why early social development affects children. In scientific terms, early childhood development is a process through which the young children grow and thrive physically, mentally, socially, emotionally and morally. It begins from conception and extends up to 8 years of age.
