My Philosophy of ECE is bases on three main factors. It is based on what are children, How do children learn, and What my role as a teacher in their learning process consists of. First of all I think children are a bundle of joy that are striving to learn the rules of life for survival. I also think that children are the future and they need to learn as much as they can. Children learn mainly through play.
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” (Plato). It is for this reason, that young children need play. It is the obligation of every teacher of young children to choose toys that are appropriate and engaging for the child. Toys must be safe, clean and preferably, open- ended. With these things in mind, a toy can be influential in the development of the child.
From birth to 19 years, children grow continually. The sequence in which all children and young people follow will be similar as they will have to develop one skill to move onto the next, however the rate of development will vary. The development can be measured through social and emotional, physical, intellectual, and language milestones to ensure that each individual child is developing on target. Social and emotional development covers aspects of relationships to self-confidence. To ensure a child’s social development is on target, praise, guidance, support and encouragement are key when helping them interact with others around them.
Would you select this toy for a child in this age group? Why or Why Not? Yes! Because the book like I mentioned before can teach the child various different things and help them build skills they might have already mastered. Toy 2: Building Blocks Description: These are building blocks which can teach children many things such as fine motor and gross motor skills.
Why did Piaget call his first stage of cognition sensorimotor intelligence? Infants learn through senses and motors skills that were developing before birth and continue to develop through infancy. 7. Why is becoming bored a sign of infant cognitive development? During the sixth stage of a toddler’s development they begin to solve simple problems using combinations, intellectual experimentation, using imagination, always exploring or pretending.
In this stage toddlers will start showing more independence. Toddlers will also be able to remember and recognise the names of familiar people and objects, as well as forming simple phrases, sentences and follow simple instructions. Lastly in their third year of life skills such as taking turns, playing pretend, and kicking a ball. Toddlers will experience a different method of thinking, learning, social, and emotional changes will help them explore their new world and make sense of it. Also in this stage the children will begin to follow more complex directions, sorting objects by shape and color, imitate actions of adults and playmates, and express a variety of emotions.
UNIT 201 Child and young person development Outcome 1 Know the main stages of child and young persons development 1.1 Describe the expected patterns of children and young persons development from birth to 19 years, to include. From birth, a child will start to grow and learn. Through nurture and stimulation they will learn movements, speech and language, and what is right and wrong. Through nurseries and schools they will learn social skills. Life skills will teach them about behaviour and emotional development.
2. Intellectual development is a child's ability to think about and understand their world. It also measures how individuals learn to think and reason for themselves in relation to the world around them. 3. Emotional development is the beginning of a child's experience, expression, understanding, and guideline of emotions from birth through late adolescence.
This is the time when one begins to get the human traits, emotional bonds, and language and communication expressions. They start getting the distinctive development features. They learn basically the basics of the way to move and act. Early child hood is the stage that one learns how to play, share and creativity. This is the years of starting school.
Children initially rely on reflexes, eventually modifying them to adapt to their world. Behaviors become goal directed, progressing from concrete to abstract goals. Objects and events can be mentally represented by the child. | Preoperational Stage(2-7 years) | This stage of development allows a child to increase his/her mental representation of objects, generally through make-believe play. Piaget states that language is the most flexible means of mental representation, but that children do not yet have the capability to solely use language as a means of representation.
