Young children watch their parents and typically “try on” their parents’ values as a framework for right and wrong. Many of life’s lessons are taught early and often through dinner table discussions, holiday gatherings, and family events. Teenagers increasingly turn to peers, teachers, and others to help sharpen their identity and define their values. They compare their observations and experience in the world against what they have learned at home. Family philanthropy can help children learn the skills and competencies necessary to lead fulfilling lives.
This is done through play. Some nurseries take children from the age of 2 where as others take between the ages of 0-5.

Developmental appropriate practice is a term that had been used in the educational field for many years. The basic concept is to work with the family’s to teach children in a way that builds on what the children already know at the time they are ready to learn it. Having learning experiences for children that are challenging but not overwhelming for them is key. In this paper I will be focusing on the five major guidelines for developmentally appropriate practice in the early childhood education field and how they meet NAEYC’s (National Associations for the Education of Young Children) excellence and equity. I will also be giving two examples of how developmental appropriate practice is used in a preschool classroom.
Wendy’s first experience came through working with her own child, which led her to working with children at the Sara A Reed Foundation ( Erie, PA) This is an early intervention Center with an after school behavioral program, where the classroom consisted of 10-12 behaviorally challenged children with only one teacher and Mrs. Silva (aide) When the subject was presented to her she rejected at first with the thoughts of not being able to handle working with children in such a mental state and then returning home with her own child. But she did and over the years she has advanced and has also used experiences from place to place as well as developing curriculum and plans to accommodate the other deserving children. Upon

Claudine Clay Autonomy Research paper Autonomy Observation Paper The setting I chose for my observation was the two year old classroom at First Friends Daycare located in Waterford Lakes Shopping Center. The design and setup of the classroom was age and level appropriate. One of the most important things about the classroom that I observed was the level of independence that was given to the children as they went about their daily routine. As defined in the text by Erikson, autonomy is described as a feeling of individuality and uniqueness often acquired in toddlerhood. During autonomy, children strive to be independent and separate from their parents or caregivers.
