ITERS Observation Doing the ITERS observation was a great experience and I learned a lot from it. First, I confirm that I really want to work with infant and toddlers. Second, I appreciate how important is to have a good and adequate environment. Third, to observer how the teacher and stuff put in practice, all what I have learned so far in class. It was my first time in an Infants/toddlers classroom; it was a great opportunity for me to see all the developmental areas that children can explore every day in the classroom and specific the child – teacher relationship.
ESE 315 WEEK 5 JOURNAL POSITION STATEMENT ESE 315 Week 5 Journal Position Statement, As I read the statement in “Early Childhood Inclusion: A Summary”, I came up with the conclusion of what the creation of a sense of belonging and membership, positive relationships and reaching full potential means when working with all young children and families. First, I would make sure that my classroom environment accommodates all my students and the parents feel comfortable with their child in the environment also. Throughout my teaching career and working with all children and families I have discovered that the best therapy a child can have is from their peers, therefore making the classroom environment as confident and warm as possible has always been a key and success for me. I have always had a classroom where all kids were included and this made all my students more peaceful and kind to one another and vey proud in their work and others as well. Since, I have been thinking of different ways of creating environments, seeing children’s strengths, abilities, and communicating with families during this class, I am going to briefly discuss two things I plan to implant in my professional experience.
Competency Statement III To support social and emotional development and to provide positive guidance, I will supply children with an emotionally and physically safe and secure environment in which they will thrive, being able to develop their own sense of self. I will do this by smiling and greeting all children and their parents each and every morning. I will always address each child by their name. I will make sure every child gets some one on one attention when I can express appropriate physical touch and enjoyment in them being in my classroom. I will get to know each child, establish relationships with parents, and support their strengths as well as their needs.
The EYFS (2008) is aimed to provide help that professionals need in order to give children the best start in life. At the heart of the EYFS (2008) is the principle that young children need a play based curriculum with supporting knowledgeable adults in order to learn, socialise and to begin to learn and understand about the world around them. Ensuring the welfare and safety of children is a fundamental part of the EYFS (2008). All early years providers, regardless of their size or the funding status of the setting, have to meet the welfare requirements of
It shows how Harry develops coping strategies when the family experiences major changes. It also highlights the contribution made by Harry’s parents and his early years educators to his early education. Much of what we learn about Harry’s early learning can be applied to many other young children. Providing a unique look at one child’s early development and learning, this book will be of interest to all who are fascinated by how young children learn – nursery practitioners, early years teachers, parents, students and advisers. Cath Arnold has worked in the field of early education for over 25 years, both in the private and public sectors.
Unit 44 Task 3 prouduced by Adaugo Nwanemuogh P3 & P4 In this assignment I will be writing my reflective entries related to my own contributions to work in my placement. I will also present a portfolio of evidence in placement. I did my placement in an early year’s nursery, where I was assigned to work with the babies and sometimes the two year olds. It is such a heart- warming experience working with the babies because it gave me the opportunity to learn the ways they develop, giving it a good and careful observation. I made sure I record every new development which I have observed, using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) it helps me set standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth.
• Foster carers support parents and families who are partners in the care, learning, development and safeguarding of their children, recognising they are the child or young person’s first, and in most situations, their most enduring carers and educators. • Foster carers are integral to the professional team supporting children and young people in public care. Values • The needs, rights and views of the child or young person are at the centre of all practice and provision. • Individuality, difference and diversity are valued and celebrated. • Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice are actively promoted.
It was only when I finally entered college that I realized I had always loved working with, and the idea of taking care of children; and what I truly wanted to do with the rest of my life was to teach children with mental disabilities. My career goal, which I have slowly been working towards throughout my 2 years in college, is to become a special education teacher for elementary students. I am currently signed up as double major in elementary and early childhood education and psychology in Queens College. I have taken many pre-requisite classes, as well as several courses specifically designed for elementary education. These courses allowed me to be taught by actual elementary school teachers, who have years of experience with working with children, and the knowledge and advice they were able to pass on truly helped me better understand what I was signing up for as an education major, and helped my improve the way I teach so that I could articulate in a way that would be comprehensible to students of a young age.
Quanisha Burgess Competency Statement V ( To Ensure a well-run purposeful program that is responsible to participate need ) I Believe that my teaching practice meet this standard in many ways. However one teaching method that I think is important is communicating with the child, I observed what the child does and say , by documents and keeping a file on each child in my class for instance I use my observation tool to see the learning levels for each child in my class, The observation tool helps me to learn the children in my class. I have been a teacher for over ten years and have used the same method, I find it much easier to communicate one on one with the child instead of in
Unit 136 Support Children’s learning and development in the early years 1.1 Understand the impact of early year’s curriculum models on the application of theoretical perspectives of children’s care, learning and development. Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
