Assessment task – CYPOP 1 Work with babies and young children to promote their development and learning Outcomes 1 and 3 – 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 1.1 There are six aspects of development for children which are all linked, each affecting the others. These are; Physical development Intellectual development Language development Emotional development Social development Spiritual development In the first month of life a baby lies on their back. If laid on their tummy they will turn their head to one side. Towards the end of the first month they will be able to lift their head when in this position. They will turn their head towards light and shiny objects and are fascinated with the human face.
Within weeks of being born a baby will start to smile and respond to sounds and environments around them. By 6 months as their muscles begin to develop they will reach for and hold objects which they will also put into their mouths. By one year old they are beginning to crawl or shuffle, pulling or pushing on furniture to stand and then cruise using furniture or adult for support. Sitting has progressed to unaided and they are rolling from their front to their back. They are beginning to be inquisitive with objects, passing them between hands, handling them in different ways and looking for things that are hiding.
E1 – Describe the development of children from the age of 0-3 years in social and emotional, and language development 0-1 years During the first year of a child’s life, emotional development is important. The baby will start to learn who their carer is and develop an emotional bond with them. When a baby has a strong emotional bond with their primary carer at the end of their first year, they’ll be comfortable when socialising with other people. When a child is aged 6-12 months, they start to understand simple instructions that have a gesture “understand simple instructions associated with a gesture, such as ‘come to daddy’, ‘clap hands’ and ‘wave bye bye’.” (Meggitt 2000:48) This is part of their language development. “In some ways developing this bond may be instinctive as, at birth, babies are able to recognise the smell of their mother and are quickly soothed when they hear her voice.” (Tassoni 2007:54) 1-2 years Children begin to learn more social skills during this age, which begins with the child being able to play with their carer and show that they’re comfortable with recognisable adults.
TDA 2.1 Child And Young Person Development 1.1 Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years, to include: - Physical Development - Communication and Intellectual Development - Social, Emotional and Behavioural Development 1.2 Describe with examples how different aspects of development can affect one another. Birth – 3 Months Physical Development: * From birth a baby’s reflexes allow them to turn their head to suckle when you touch their cheek. * The baby can flex their fingers, arms and legs. * By 1 month a baby should be able to follow a light with their eyes, if only for a short period of time. * From 4-8 weeks babies should be able to slightly lift their head when laid on their front.
Stimulation aids development. At the age of one and a half a child learns that asking questions gets information so they are always asking questions to get information. Babies from 0 – 6 months puts different things in their mouth so they learn what they are. Also at 6- 12 months they repeat a lot of things they see. At two years you can have a nice conversation with the baby.
Unit 201 – Child and young person development Outcome 1) Know the main stages of child and young person development 1.1 Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years. a) Physical development Between birth and 6 months an infant begins to develop a rhythm of feeding, sleeping and eliminating which may correspond with the primary care givers sleeping patterns. The infant will also gain control of eye movement and develop basic motor control so they will be able to balance their head, roll over, pull self to sitting and may briefly sit alone. This will help normal muscle development as the infant grows rapidly, doubling their birth weight. By 12 months the infant will be able to crawl and may be beginning to walk, they will use large objects, furniture and people to pull themselves to standing.
TDA 2.1 Child and young person development Task 1 Physical Development Birth to one year Newborn babies can turn their heads to look for food, and once found they are able to suck and swallow. If you hold a baby upright with their feet on your lap or a surface of some kind they will make stepping movements. They will also stretch out their arms when they want to be picked up. As they grow, a baby’s determination to master movement, balance, and the fine-motor skills is very high. 1-3 Years By their first birthday, most babies have learnt the basics of movement and being mobile by either sitting, rolling, shuffling or crawling around.
As we know, infants and toddlers are such a joy to be around. They bring a certain type of happiness to not only their parents, but family, friends and those who come in contact with them. Infants and toddlers do not stay babies for very long. As soon as a child enters out of its mother’s womb, he or she begins the developmental process. Infants and toddlers grow quickly, or should I say “in a blink of an eye”.
Task 1.1 Physical Development from 0-19 years Babies are born with starting signs of physical development. They can move their head and limbs, will start to grasp fingers and if held in an upright position use their legs in a stepping movement. They are also born with the ability to suck which is essential for feeding. By around 6 months a child can turn their heads towards sound and movement as well as smiling at familiar faces and watching an adults face when feeding. They can reach to hold their feet when lying on their backs, .
Children with different backgrounds and cultures develop and grow differently and at their own pace. In order for a three-year-old child to be physically, psychologically and emotionally healthy and develop into a holistic person, parents, teachers and caregivers should fulfil the physical and psychological needs of the child. In this essay the importance of physical and psychological needs for a child will be covered and explained in details. Important issues of a child’s well-being and safety issues will be identified and explained. An ideal environment in a school for a three-year-old child’s daily activities will be explained and discussed.
