Introduction A toy/game that is interactive helps the child develop in many different parts of his body and mind. We will learn about the types of play for an early childhood aged kid. I will tell you about the game and how it is used. In addition, how the game helps with the child’s development. Type of Play Play is very important in the child’s growth and development (Myers 2012).
Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for the Children and Young Peoples Workforce-Early Years (Management/Advanced Practice) Unit 136 136.2,7 Through adult-led activities we can introduce children to new ideas, provide opportunities for them to develop their skills and ensure that they experience all six areas of learning in the EYFS. During adult-led activities we are in control of the teaching we are providing. However, what we cannot have any control over is what young children are learning from these activities. This is why it is important to balance adult-led activities with time and opportunity for children to explore their own ideas, play with resources and use their imagination and creativity. Through doing this and practising the skills that they have learned the children will be able to take ownership of their learning and be able to apply it in different situations.
1.2 Explain current theoretical approaches to creativity and creative learning in early childhood. Current theoretical approaches include Nature and nurture, being creative is something you genetically are just good at or is it something you can be taught. Cognitive theories looks at how we process things in the brain, how children connect one item to another. For example a box to some children may represent a house and to someone else it may be a shed or dog house. Social models looks at children using the environment around them as a means of being creative.
P2 1.2 Describe how play contributes to children and young people’s development A child starts to develope from the moment they are conceived. Once born many aspects determine how a child develops, health, diet, environments, stress and poverty. The role of play in child development is enormous, children learn through play and each toy or object or friend or experience in play helps another developmental phase. E.g Role play or fantasy play provides replication skills, social skills, imagination skills all this helps them learn and grow. Sandpit play provides maths and science concepts e.g.
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.
Children initially rely on reflexes, eventually modifying them to adapt to their world. Behaviors become goal directed, progressing from concrete to abstract goals. Objects and events can be mentally represented by the child. | Preoperational Stage(2-7 years) | This stage of development allows a child to increase his/her mental representation of objects, generally through make-believe play. Piaget states that language is the most flexible means of mental representation, but that children do not yet have the capability to solely use language as a means of representation.
Explain how different types of interventions can promote positive outcomes from children and young people where development is not following the expected pattern. If during the monitoring of a child’s development at any age, it is identified as having difficulties, then the child and family may need extra support to help the child reach its goals and achieve positive outcomes. Nottinghamcity.gov.uk "Early intervention can help children from pregnancy to 18 years, not only when they are very young" All the intervention programmes and professionals are there to help children and young people become more engaged and motivated, by helping them to communicate more effectively, to control behavioural issues, to control and strengthen physical movements,
Lev Vygotsky recognized that social interaction between a child and an adult or a more knowledgeable peer is a catalyst for developing a child’s cognitive learning. Teachers’ verbal direction, physical assistance and probing questioning help children to improve their skills and acquire knowledge. A child’s classmate with advanced skills can also help the child to grow and learn by modeling their abilities or by giving help. Vygotsky uses the term Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) to describe the range of a child’s learning about a specific experience. On the lower lever of the ZPD is what the child can do independently and the upper level of the ZPD is what a child can learn by watching and or talking to peers and teachers.
The most important period on life to development attention span, mental capacities and everything that has to do with brain development is the childhood. It is very important to pay attention to what children do, because that might have a huge influence to their future. Here, we will examine two essays about those characteristics on children: “I’m Bored! What Your Child is Really Telling You” by Linda Morgan and “The Great Baby Einstein Scam” by Mira Jacob. “I’m Bored!
CCLD 206 Support children’s play and learning K2D85 how to support children’s communication, intellectual development and learning in your setting Children tend to learning and progress and how well they are taught and additional external factors such as their home life and how their parents communicate with them. The influence of siblings or the involvement of children in groups from an early age can also play a major factor (for example play groups) these influences obviously spill over into the setting environment and it is then up to us as carers to further assist in the development.
