Observation Journal: Entry 5 Observer: Allison Conces Date of Observation: March 9, 2005 Setting/Context: Tomorrow’s Promise Montessori School classroom Huntsville, TX Children/Adolescents Observed: 40 boys and girls, ages 3-5 Observation Notes: I come in and take a seat at one of the child-sized tables in one half of the room. On the other side of the room, the children and teachers are seated in a circle on the carpet. They are getting ready to go play outside for a little while because it looks like rain. The children line up and go outside. On their way out, 5 or 6 children wave to me and one little boy comes up and gives me a hug.
Some playgroups and preschools Childminders. Surestart. From 1st September 2010 the goverment extended these hours from 12 to 15 hours for up to 38 weeks of the year. The free entilement provides access to early childhood education and care ensuring that all children have opportunity to benefit from early years education. Day nurseries often based in workplaces and run by business or voluntary groups providing care and learning activities for children from birth to five years old.
Task 1. There are 4 different development types in which each individual experiences before they reach adulthood; physical development, intellectual development, language development and social and emotional development. Physical development begins before an individual is even born but the development really begins as soon as they are born. By 6 months of age an infant can usually turn their heads to the sounds of familiar words and voices and smile, they will also be able to hold and shake objects such as a rattle when they are introduced to play objects. By age 1 they will have developed more detail in what they can see so will be able to tell the difference between given food and given a play toy.
Unit 331 understand child and young person development. 1.1 Sequence and rate of development is all dependant on the individual child/young person, their physical, communication, intellectual and social development is crucial to understand in order to help them. 0 to 3 years old babies are new to this atmosphere they use small muscle movements such as reflexes, sucking, smiling and raising their hands. By 5 months they begin to roll over and shuffle, at 8 months they pull and push on toys/furniture/anything and everything to stand and then glide using the same method of transport. At this stage they are now becoming more curious and want to play with toys, teeth are beginning to sprout and they are now eating solids.
10 – 11 years – have a understanding of rules so everyone can live happily alongside each other. 13 – 19 years – have developed their own values and ideas and they may be different to their parents and family member this is when children will challenge others. 22.1.2 The difference between a sequence of development and the rate of development is. A sequence of development is the order the development happens in such as walking, crawling, and sitting up. The rate of development is how quickly they do it such as one child maybe walking at 10 months but another not.
Others are making a lot of noise around him. Another child bumps his chair as they are walking by and he is unaffected. Eyes are still on the screen. Left hand is resting on the desk. Teacher calls clean up time and child stays seated continuing to play games.
Running head: A DAY IN DAYCARE: TODDLER OBSERVATION A Day in Daycare: Toddler Observation Study Abstract The observation of two year old toddlers was conducted along with a parent interview to assess developmental stages in the average toddler’s developmental stage. The study focused on motor skills and language ability, individual differences in areas of motor skills and language ability, forms of play, attachment /possessiveness, pro social behaviors and empathy, and forms of self-regulation. These stages are examined not only through observation but also through an interview with the parents. The parents are asked questions that compare and contrast development stages between their child as an infant and toddler. A Day at Daycare: Toddler Observation Study Toddlers At the Joyous Sound Enrichment Center, the average 2 year old toddler has a long schedule.
Unit 4227-022 Understand child and young person development. 1.1 Explain the sequence rate of each aspect of development from birth o 19 years. Children will develop at different rates and in many different ways, although the sequence of how they develop is relatively the same, for example, babies tend to sit up before they crawl, and crawl before they walk. Physical development Birth-12months: Within weeks of birth, young babies will begin smiling, and responding to sounds around them, babies from 6 months will start to sit up and crawl, enjoy new tastes and textures of foods and use their hand eye coordination to hold onto objects. 1-2 years: Children will begin walking and toys will start to be pushed/pulled along whilst walking (often to support with walking) Objects will be picked up and banged together or built to make a small tower.
Language development: • A six month old baby will be able to make a variety of happy sounds. • will respond to music and singing • will mirror their parent’s movements and expressions. 6 TO 12 MONTHS BABY Physical development: • The toddler will have learnt to sit first with support, and then without. • will be able to roll over • he will begin to crawl or shuffle • he will be able to stand with support • he will raise his arms when he wants to be lifted • he will respond to his name • he will pass objects from hand to hand • Look for things that have been hidden and reach for food. Social and emotional development: • Baby will develop “Separation Anxiety” (some babies develop it earlier or
