Cu2935 Support Children’s Care, Learning and Development in Early years 1. Understand the import of early year’s curriculum models on the application of theoretical perspectives of children’s care, learning and development. 1.1 Outline early year’s curriculum models supporting children’s care, learning and development. Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age 5 have a major impact on their future life.
Piaget's Theory According to Piaget, children in the earliest stages of life, from birth to 2 years, exist in a sensory-motor stage, where they learn to move and operate their bodies as well as begin to understand simple symbols. In this early stage, children are curious about their environment and begin to learn how to interpret it in sensible ways. The next stage is called preoperational thought and lasts from the ages of 2 until 7. In this stage, children develop stable concepts, mental reasoning and imagination. What is distinct and important about Piaget's views is that he considered imagination and play to be crucial to enable every child to develop his own sense of self and to foster healthy learning habits.
Unit 6 Understand child and young person’s development. 09.09.13 Review A child's development usually follows a known and predictable course. The acquisition of certain skills and abilities is often used to gauge such development. Children will reach milestones at certain ages throughout their development, if a child does not seem to be achieving these areas of development this may be a concern and an area that needs special attention. From birth to 19 years a child should achieve a number of significant development areas, these are determined by a sequence of development and the rate of development.

It is controlled by seeking individuality from parents and emerging one's personality. Compared to the child, a teenager's thought courses are more consistent, composite and idealistic. (Peterson, 2010) Joel - Childhood 2-10 throughout this period, children become progressively independent from their parents as they learn to do things themselves and additional achievement self-control.
Through their play children practise and consolidate their learning, play with ideas, experiment, take risks, solve problems, and make decisions… First-hand experiences allow children to develop an understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. Practical ideas The role of the adult in child-initiated learning is to: Organise the physical environment so children have access to a wide range of interesting open-ended resources to explore and investigate imaginatively Develop an emotional
Early Childhood Education –Activity Program Justine McGranahan Brandman University Early childhood education normally focuses on children’s development for the ages of three to five. During this development period, we should be equally focused on the mental and physical development of children. In the recent decades, there has been an emphasis placed on mental development which in turn has put a de-emphasis on physical development. Mental and physical development goes hand in hand and we shouldn’t consider the two separate during this development stage. Physical development for children is just as important as their mental development.
REFLECTIVE JOURNAL ECE 205 Introduction to Child Development a. What has impacted your learning the most throughout this course? This course has impacted my knowledge of how important changes are that occur when a child grows and develops. This includes being physically healthy, mentally alert, emotionally sound, socially competent and ready to learn. As per research the first three years are critical in the shaping of a child’s brain construction and early experiences is the base of the brain’s organizational development leading throughout life.
Behaviour- Speech, language and communication skills support children’s learning development as children find it hard to control their behaviour but once language is present they seem to have more control and it is thought that may be children think their behaviour through also they focus on the consequences of their actions. Social- Speech, language and communication skills support children’s social development as children will be able to recognise emotions and be able to control their own emotions. Also the children will be able to talk through activities with their friends or carers. 3. If a child has speech, language and communication difficulties, it would have an impact on their development currently because they may not follow the expected pattern of development for their communication.
This can support the children's thinking and extend their learning. Practtitoners withing the setting role play how to be creative with divergent thinking. Model being creative, for example. Childen within the setting understand they have freedom to access all resources, but have also developed an understanding that it is important to put equipment back back where it belongs. (Montessori) within practice it is vital to practitoners to gain an understanding of how they support the childrens creativity and crititcal thinking, so often record how practitoners interact with children and then reflect upon it for future development and
A: The Child centred approach The Child centred approach is a practice that focuses on the child and their needs and looks closely at the child’s rights and responsibilities. To use this method in the environment it would take planning and observation to get a better understanding of how the methods used will benefit the children. In different settings children will begin to learn by picking different activities that they have an interest in, for example sand play and painting. Knowing this I will plan ahead and learn the children’s interests so that every child is involved in the activities and meets the curriculum. Additionally the child’s centred approach lets the children find their own learning styles and boosts the child’s confidence.
