CYP 31 Understand child and young person development Outcome 1 Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people from birth – 19 years 1. Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth – 19 years Development is the gaining of skills in all aspects of a child’s life. The different types of development are split into four areas: Physical development: this refers to the body increasing in skill and performance and includes: * gross motor development (using large muscles), for example legs and arms * fine motor development (precise use of muscles), for example hands and fingers Social and emotional development: this is the development of a child’s identity and self-image, the development of relationships and feelings about him or herself and learning the skills to live in society with other people. Intellectual development: this is learning the skills of understanding, memory and concentration. Communication and speech development: this is learning to communicate with friends, family and all others.
This aspect of learning makes sure that workers know that children need a wide range of experiences, materials and resources for them to be able to express themselves by planning different types of activities for them to do. These could be painting, drawing, junk modelling, musical instruments and heuristic play. Exploring media and materials is being able to provide the children to explore from
What is happening in the child’s environment. It also includes whether the child has any additional needs or which children/people are around the child as the child may act differently around different groups of friends and different members of staff. To assess young children in a setting you follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) the EYFS give guidelines as to what a child should achieve at what age or stage. To find out what stage a child is achieving members of staff, especially the key person, perform observations and record these. These observations should cover all areas which are Physical development, Communication and language, Literacy, Personal, social and education, Maths, Art and design and Understanding the world.
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.
Considering the work of key pioneers and current experts with links to child development theory. There are many theories about how children learn and develop. This area of study is called developmental psychology which covers subjects such as cognitive, language and emotional development. The research methods are based heavily on the on going assessments carried out by observing children over a period of time. Assessment is part of the process of understanding what children know, understand and can do so that future teaching steps can be appropriately planned.
Unit 1: Understand Child & Young Person Development 1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth – 19 years Child development is a process every child goes through. The sequence of a child’s development, also known as developmental milestones are divided into five different aspects: Physical; Social, Emotional and behavioural; Communication and language; Intellectual and cognitive. PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT 0 – 3 Years The physical development between the ages of 0-3 years is generally very rapid. At birth babies depend on reflexes for movements to allow them to feed or grasp whenever they touch something. By the age of one; they have a lot more control over their bodies.
Task 2 Communication and Professional relationships with children, young people and adults in an educational environment is an important part of a professional relationship. * Describe how communication with children and young people differs across different age ranges and stages of development Children’s cognitive, emotional, physical and social skills develop as they go through life. As they grow and mature, their needs, abilities, interests and challenges change. Younger children may be able to comprehend through very simple language and concrete images, older children are able to process more complicated linguistic and visual expressions. Various psychological theories on human development are based on the concept of “stage”.
They use their imagination and are able to see an object as something else; like using blocks for play food, or hands for telephones. It is in this discovery that children learn the world, they learn who they are; they learn who others are. I believe that every child and every person, for that matter, is unique. I encourage one on one individual time with each child. This helps us as care providers to learn about that particular child and their rate of development and their ability to do things.
022 Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people from birth to 19 years. Aspects of a child and young person’s development include: • Physical development – includes gross motor skills (using large muscle areas such as arms and legs), and fine motor skills (precise use of muscles such as hands and fingers). • Intellectual/communication – includes learning the skills of understanding and communicating with others. • Social and Emotional – includes the development of a child’s identity, the development of relationships and learning the skills of living in society. Development is usually referred to on a timeline and is broken down into ages.
Through play a child learns about himself and the others around him which in turn teaches him how to deal with others in the wider world. Cognitive perspective is a significant part of early development. For example playing, playing helps children to learn the skills necessary to effectively take part in their world. It also offers children with natural opportunities to connect in real and meaningful
