3.1 An explanation of the benefits for babies and young children of a key worker/person system in early years settings. In the early years setting each child has to be given a key worker. This is because the EYFS statutory framework states that in the framework in the early years setting they have to stick by. The benefits of the key workers for babies and young children are when the babies and young children are more independent, you would do this by the young children and babies to being able to depend on adults for reassurance for comfort. This will make the babies and young children feel happy and feel safe and secure they get more confidantes to explore and try new things out.
With positive behaviour around, children find it much easier what is expected of them. Starting from a young age having boundaries with children is crucial so as they grow they will know what behaviour is acceptable and what behaviour isn't. They need consistency so that way staff have to work close with partent/carers to let them know what boundaries we have in our settings and try and get the partents to use our techniques at home so the children dont get confussed. Children need a lot of consistency in their lifes to help them know what is good behaviour. This also helps children take responsibility for their actions and also they are part of the process.
Synthesis Essay 2 “The most powerful question a parent can ask” by Neil Millar and “Be-ers and Doers” by Budge Wilson are about making children demonstrate great accountability. Neil Millar talks about “what kind of children do (we) want to raise” whereas Budge talks about the difference between being and doing. Both of the passages represent that being parents is a very challenging job but “the most powerful question a parent can ask “ shows the more respectful approach of parents to their children. In some families values play an important role. “(These) values pass on mother-to-mother combine with the natural instincts to love, support and nurture.” If a person was raised spending most of the time on the things that were being bad influence for them such as wrestling or teen’s reality show or their parents were too busy working and did not have enough time to check if they were keeping up with the homework and reading.
A child who does not have positive experiences with their early childhood education may suffer both academically and socially later on in life, lacking the proper groundwork toward a good, solid education, I believe it it extremely important to instill a positive outlook in a child regarding education and learning in general. It’s so vital that a child be exposed to various learning experiences in order to grow as both a person, future student, and finally (hopefully) a successful adult. That being said, I would now like to discuss my own personal experience with my own early childhood education, from as far back as I can remember: As a child, I grew up with a set of wonderful parents, whom have always been extremely supportive towards me in every aspect of my life. I have an older half-brother and half-sister from my dad’s previous marriage, and they would visit on the weekends, which I loved. My dad worked as a director in the field of market research, and my mom, who had previously worked in a medical office, stayed home the first six or so years of my life.
This helps us as care providers to learn about that particular child and their rate of development and their ability to do things. No one child is the same as another. Not every child develops at the same rate as others. Therefore, promoting one on one time with each child is important. Have fun with children.
CHILD GUIDANCE CENTRE ‘We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it.’ ~George Eliot. Above is a famous quotation by George Eliot. This saying clearly reflects the idea that childhood is one of the most important and beautiful phase of anyone’s life. It is during this phase that Children get prepared to grow up to be a fine adult. So adequate care, love and effort is needed to be given by parents or other well-wishers so that the child has a beautiful and stress-free childhood.
Actually, each point of view has some strong reasons to support its position. People who believe that sending children to school at a very early age is good think it allows them to learn that studying is an important thing in life, an important part of developing the personality. Due to early studying children can grow up more independent with the understanding that their lives depend only on themselves. Also, children who begin their formal education at a very early age and spend most of their time at school will are more sociable. From a very early age they learn how to communicate and behave in society in a proper way.
When the parents provide infants and toddlers with stimulation then they will learn more (New, 2011). The more stimulation and nurturing an infant or toddler is provided will cause them to progress developmentally faster than that have not been stimulated or nurtured. When a child has both cultural and biological influences they tend to develop faster and to the best of their abilities. When a parent nurtures a child from birth, that child is a well-loved child that is provided with the support and care needed to succeed in life. A child’s nature provides the child with his/her own identity.
His particular insight was the role of maturation (simply growing up) in children's increasing capacity to understand their world: they cannot undertake certain tasks until they are psychologically mature enough to do so. He proposed that children's thinking does not develop entirely smoothly: instead, there are certain points at which it "takes off" and moves into completely new areas and capabilities. He saw these transitions as taking place at about 18 months, 7 years and 11 or 12 years. This has been taken to mean that before these ages, children are not capable (no matter how bright) of understanding things in certain ways, and has been used as the basis for scheduling the school curriculum. Piaget outlined several principles for building cognitive structures.
Erikson's approach differentiates the mastery of childhood issues from adult ones by stressing the different virtues necessary for each stage. Hope and will are the two major virtues in the early childhood stages of development, and these develop into industry and competence as the child grows. Unless basic childhood issues of trust, purpose and autonomy are mastered in the early stages of life, the proper foundation of personhood will not be laid out for the later, more complex issues of identity, vocation and fidelity. 3. For Vygotsky, the movement is from a teacher helping the child to the child helping himself.
