This essay will demonstrate how these relationships can be built and what is needed to make these relationships successful across the ages of 0-5. The beginnings of a relationship are formed just a few weeks after a child is born. The Understanding Children (2007) DVD, Band 1, shows babies enjoying the interaction of play and communication when spoken to. The way in which the adult talks to the child is very important. Research has shown that the sing-song speech, often accompanied by exaggerated facial expressions is loved by babies, (Rai & Flynn, p27).
help each child enjoy their learning and make progress towards the early learning goals. provide a balance of adult led and child led activities that help children to think critically, play and explore and be active and creative learners. have good expectations for children and enthuse and motivate them. plan for individual children, taking into account their culture and background, including any children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, those learning English as an additional language and those who achieve beyond what is expected to ensure that you are offering an inclusive service and that each child receives an enjoyable and challenging experience across all areas of learning. support each child in their learning and work with parents and carers as partners in children’s learning and development.
If trust develops successfully, the child gains confidence and security in the world around him and is able to feel secure even when threatened. Unsuccessful completion of this stage can result in an inability to trust, and therefore an sense of fear about the inconsistent world. It may result in anxiety, heightened insecurities, and an over feeling of mistrust in the world around them. Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt. Between the ages of one and three, children begin to assert their independence, by walking away from their mother, picking which toy to play with, and making choices about what they like to wear, to eat, etc.
Interacting and playing with the child will teach them new emotions and help learn how to explore themselves and learn new things on their own. (MDE) Working with the baby to begin walking is important, starting at birth. This includes helping the child gain strong back muscles. Working with the baby from day one will increase the speed of development and keep the baby healthy. (MDE) Once the baby is four to six months old, the parents should start seeing growth in physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development.
Fostering Creativity in children is important for today’s kids. Because of growing numbers of kids playing video games, watching television and going to structured play activities such as camps, there is very little free time for children to just play. Research is showing that play is beneficial for kids. The availability to unstructured play can lead to boredom. Many parents have asked if allowing their kids space to be bored is OK.
Attachment can form at any age but early attachments are formed through being sociable from birth, this happens through interactions with people from the moment they are born. An example of a social interaction that can later contribute to the child forming a bond is face recognition. This is being able to recognise familiar faces and therefore can be the start of a bond. If early attachment is made with another person, for example this may be the main carer, then the child is likely to go on to strengthen that bond until firm attachments are made. Attachment allows the child to learn trust and feel secure with the person they are bonding with, this is important in how they form relationships with others.
1. Understand the pattern of development that would normally be expected for children and young people from birth – 19 yrs. 2.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspects of development that would normally be expected in children and young people from birth – 19 years. Children’s development is continuous and can be measured in a number of different ways. Although all children will develop at different rates and in different ways, the sequence in which they develop will be roughly the same as they need to have developed one skill, for example walking, before they move on to develop another such as running and jumping.
After birth, baby begins his first interaction with a smile when looked into his eyes by the parent. The parent is baby's first playmate as well as his first teacher of skills. With the parent's help, baby gets to know others, and also likes to be in their company. Newborns show great signs of interest in faces and imitate their facial expressions. He begins to express his needs through various facial expression which is another means of social interaction.
They learn to explore and take risks in their life. Play is important for a child as it is also their right to play and enjoy their childhood. It gives them opportunity to explore the environment around them, for example- a six month old baby is given a rattle to play with- he/she will move it, try to twist and turn it, put it in their mouth (of course it is baby friendly), to see if the toy makes noise or what does it taste like what else can it do apart from making noise they will try to find about it while enjoying themselves. This is a learning process for them as they will not be afraid to explore and investigate things. Play is a necessity for a child because it helps in making them stronger physically, psychologically and socially.
The more children know about their world, the easier it is for them to read and learn when they get to school. You have an important role to play in helping children learn new information, ideas, and vocabulary and how to use this knowledge to become full participants in their own learning. You can help children to connect new information and ideas to what they already know and understand. As a teacher, you and the children's parents and caregivers are partners in helping to get the children ready for future school success. Good communication with parents and caregivers can build support for and strengthen the important work that you are doing in the classroom.
