The infants were observe from a distance. I observed them from my desk while they were playing in the room with their caregivers and professor Matheson and also with each other.

Professor Matheson placed baby and toddler toys on the mat floor, such as a ball, a doll with baby bottle and blanket, phone, shapes, stack cups and rings, blocks, a choo choo train, squeaky duck toy, elmo’s music toy and two children books. At first was just Jesse in the classroom but after 20 minutes the other toddler arrive with his caregiver.

Child study project Alfredo Sanchez Psych 150 Professor Dugan January 22, 2014 Introduction I had the pleasure today of observing a young 5-year old Hispanic boy at his home. The child seems to have a tight-knit family, with both parents taking an active part in the child's daily life. The child has an older and younger brother, ages 8 and 4, making him the middle child of the family. The boy lives with both parents, but spends more time with his mother than her father. I thought it would be of best interest, in this case, to interview the mother and ask her few questions about their lifestyle with the boy, what his particular strengths and weaknesses are and various milestones the boy was able to reach throughout the course

There are assessments when a child is aged between 2 and 3 years and at the end of the academic year when they turn 5. The assessments are based on EYFS practitioners’ observations. Information from the assessments is used for parents, practitioners and teachers to support children’s learning and development. The 7 areas that early years learning concentrates on are: * communication and language * physical development * personal, social and emotional development * literacy * mathematics * understanding of the world * expressive arts and design Teaching is often done through play, where the child learns about subjects and other people through games. At the end of the academic year when a child turns 5, the practitioner records each child’s development by watching the child playing and in the classroom.
The children rely on their technology that is available for them instead of their parents. The room and the house replaced their parents, when the parents let the house do everything for them. These are all ways in which the house replaces their parents and takes responsibility for the family. After the father lets them play in the nursery for a final time in the end, they call them Mommy and
