When a child first starts at a Montessori School they are introduced to Practical life activities as they activities satisfy the child’s desire for skills and self sufficiency. The children can see that the activities relate to what adults are doing everyday around the house. The exercises of practical life help the child to adapt to the world around them and help them on the way to self perfection. The practical life exercises help the child develop confidence and competence in the dealing with their environment and the materials they use are ones that they see used daily. All exercises should be demonstrated by an adult in a positive manner, they should show the child how to do the exercise and not correct any previous errors.
The staff should be aware of the children’s needs, interests, what they like to play with, and provide activities which reflect their needs and interests and support children through group times.

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.
The infants have appropriate opportunities to climb, crawl, roll, and scoot safely on structures designed specifically for them. The classroom is rearranged frequently to provide new challenges and opportunities. The infant classroom provides a safe, comfortable, clean, attractive environment in which children can spend productive, enjoyable days with their friends and teachers. The placement of the furniture, (cribs, rocking chairs, high chairs, cabinets, low shelving, tables, etc. ), are clear from classroom walkways.
Things such as arts and crafts, music and imagination will all play a big role in the creative learning process. One who is a preschool teacher must also prepare outdoor activities and games for the students. This will help them improve their coordination and motor skills. With that said, the preschool teacher must ensure a safe play environment for the children to engage in activities within. A preschool teacher must also cater to the basic needs of the children.
This makes the children feel safe, happy and secure during their time at school. Teachers play a critical role in creating a positive environment for children as children look up to teachers as a role model and expect them to create and environment which they can feel relaxed and happy in. The physical appearance of an environment is also important for creating a positive environment. If the room creates a happy atmosphere the children will be more likely to work and enjoy their time at school. A way to make the classroom seem a happier atmosphere is to decorate it as if it was a room at home; you can do this by using bright coloured paint on the walls such as red, green, yellow and blue.
I like that the entire exit signs were visible and that there was parent update information board in the classroom. Teachers were making sure to go over all classroom rules before letting students move around. I also noticed that the classrooms were very clean with hardwood flooring and rugs that were installed into the floors. I noticed that the teachers were very engaged with the students and were not just standing around talking to each other they were making sure each student was safe by looking around and interacting. After each activity for example snack time, art time, play dough the desks were cleaned with disinfecting wipes and all children washed hands.
