When I introduce the block area to the children I show them the shapes of the blocks and tell them the names of the blocks as well. By doing this the children’s language is enhanced, mathematical skills, and also their social skills are enhanced. I ask the children to count how many blocks they think they will need to use to construct and I also ask them open-ended questions to keep language skills developing and their imagination going. Interacting with peers in the block area is also developing because a lot of time I notice the children working together to construct things. In dramatic play I give children a opportunity to relate to real life experiences.

The constructivist approach to early childhood education offers children the opportunity to construct knowledge through daily experiences and encounters with parents, teachers, peers, events, and objects in the world. Children develop theories, negotiate learning, and merge thoughts together, thereby building knowledge and understanding. It is the right of all children to be part of a school community that respects them as competent individuals who are viewed as contributors to the process of learning. The educators of Reggio Emilia show us the possibilities of what can happen when we trust and respect the capabilities of children. We believe that the Reggio Approach is successful because of its powerful image and deep respect for the culture of childhood, and for its strong belief that children, teachers, and parents all work together in the process of building knowledge.
As a key person I have key children who I monitor day to day. As I do this, I like to meet regally with their parents to update their progress and development. I also believe sharing information with my room manager is very important because, If I am absent from work one day and one of my key children are in, there may be a chance she doesn’t know certain needs that require for the child. I also think when talking to a child I would speak in a calm and kind manner, to encourage the child’s self-confidence and to help them behave sensibly. It will help build a relationship with the child and for them to be able to trust me and become more openly about any problems they may have.

Skill building, to help their minds develop and better understand how to do day to day skills. Interaction, not only amongst the children, but with the teachers and adults as well. And last, but not least, individual exploration. It is crucial for children to explore themselves, for them to find out who they are and what their likes and dislikes are.
Visiting a Early childcare and education center showed me there's a lot more than just babysitting or watching kids. when you enter into the Early child care and Education field you are educating, supporting, being responsible for children and loving them like they are your own. Learning about the importance of knowing as much about every childs family and community around them is a great way to become and have a great daycare.
