Question: Analyse, in terms of psychological theory, a recent topical event concerned with child care or education. In September 2008 a new national curriculum for the under-fives will be introduced. This new curriculum is known as the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and all childminders and nurseries will be legally required to follow its guidelines. The framework sets out around 500 developmental milestones between birth and primary school and requires under-fives to be assessed on writing, problem solving and numeracy skills.

How is being labeled a “special needs” child going to influence his education? According to Public School Review, self-contained classrooms have been used for decades. They were created to help foster enhanced support for students with special needs or specific difficulties ("Understanding Self-Contained Classrooms in Public Schools | PublicSchoolReview.com."). Self-contained classrooms consist of a smaller student to teacher ratio than traditional classrooms, usually no more than ten students and one teacher with an extensive special education background. Students who show learning disabilities like autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia, gifted or talented and gifted (TAG), and students who are cognitively, behaviorally, or emotionally struggling are usually placed in self-contained classrooms ("Understanding Self-Contained Classrooms in Public Schools | PublicSchoolReview.com.").

Parents can pay for additional child care hours. It is compulsory for children to start school full time from the age of five, however most schools do offer places from the September after a child turns four years old. This is part of the Childcare Act 2006, Every Child matters Agenda, every child is entitled to an education. Young children are encouraged to learn through play, hence developing their independence away from their parents, enhancing confidence, communication and social skills. Thus ensuring a positive attitude towards school and smooth transition to Key Stage 1.
The schedule for the day is always posted. I began using a picture schedule with a child with autism in my early childhood classroom. I found it not only beneficial for him, but for the rest of the class. I carried the idea with me to my current fist grade classroom. The use of a picture schedule is a tool I use to teach students about telling time, morning and afternoon, and chronological order.
