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.
How Young Learners Learn Introduction This assignment aims to examine how young learners develop and learn. The main section of this assignment will present an overview of several theories of child development and learning that appear to have had a profound impact on educational perspectives in the last two centuries. Brewster, Ellis and Girard (2002) stress that every young learner is a unique individual with different learning needs. The ideal learning environment, it seems, would be one which presents the young learner with the opportunity to discover their own learning style, interests and preferences which would lead to independence and success. The overall aim of the assignment is to highlight various theoretical standpoints on learning and first and second language acquisition and the highlight the links between them.

This paper will discuss the important stages in the development as to how the child changes from physical, emotional, social, and cognitive perspective throughout this time period. Physical Change Physical changes in early childhood are accompanied by rapid changes in the child’s cognitive and language development. From the beginning of birth they use all their senses to attend to their environment. They begin to develop a sense of cause and effect from their actions and the responses of caregivers. As the new born grows into a young person he can take care of his or her own body and interact effectively with others.
Transitions and Challenges in Adulthood One's physical, cognitive and social-emotional development must be examined regards to early and middle childhood modification. The three stages of child development focus on early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence regards to transition and developmental processes. In addition, major challenges, including health and fitness, and expertise and creativity must continue to be analyzed through clinical practice and further research (Berk, 2010). Developmental processes One's first year of life is extremely critical for healthy advancement, including his physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development (Berk, 2010). The fact is when a child begins to develop; the influences around him will determine his readiness and later his success or failure in his lifespan.
The stages of development begin with rapid evolvement for the infant from prenatal to three years of age. According to Berger (2008), “All theorist agree that the first two years are crucial, with early emotional and social development influenced by the parents’ behavior, the quality of day care, cultural patterns, and inborn traits” (p. 199). Nutritional needs, medical needs as well as emotional well-being are crucial elements that require family support. Family involvement and its environment will always play a key role in health and development as the child grows. The Family Affect on Infant Development The relationship between an infant and his or her caregivers is crucial and is the starting point or groundwork laid for future relationships (Kowalski & Westen, 2009, p. 459).
Future studies would benefit from acknowledgement of possible socio-economic and cultural differences as well as establishing the potential impact of power dynamics on responses given in the adult-child interview condition. Introduction Identity, based on sense-of-self or self-concept is believed to develop over a long period and as Maccoby (1980) suggests, “self-awareness develops incrementally and is produced by understandings which become more and more complex”. This suggestion is relevant since it highlights the idea that it continues to mature throughout childhood. The sense-of-self is divided into two steps- ‘I’ (‘self-as-subject’) and the ‘me’ (‘self-as-object’), where once a child has developed a certain level of self-awareness (the ‘I’), they are then ready to place themselves and be placed by others (the ‘me’). James (1892) These categories are used to define who they are, developing a sense- of-self.
CYP 3.1 2.3 Explain how the theories of development frameworks to support development influence current practice Researched from How Children Learn by Linda Pound Jean Piaget - Cognitive Piaget was interested in intellectual development. He identified 4 stages of development from birth through to adulthood. These are Sensorimotor Piaget called the first 2 years of a child's life the sensorimotor stage. This is when babies/toddlers knowledge and understanding are chiefly drawn from physical action and their sight, sound, taste, touch and smell (senses). Preoperational This is the stage from the age of 2 year up to the age of around 6 or 7 years old.

Importance of Early Childhood Education It’s important for a child to receive early education because it is the time for growing, forming and brain developing. Children who are small require specific skills like language, social interaction. When they are small they have the ability to take everything in and remember to well. We as parents have the opportunity to nurture and educate our children on all levels, making sure that our children are being taught properly. Early childhood education is a field of study that concerns itself with all aspect of early life experiences.
