Ages of children: From birth to 12 years of age. Qualifications of staff: Childminders need wide knowledge about children's development and how to meet the needs of children of a wide variety of ages, cultures and family backgrounds. It is strongly recommended that Childminders attend a pre registration course. Regulatory body: You must register with the Office for Standards in Education (OFSTED) if you want to be paid to look after children under 6 for more than 2 hours a day in England. There are two registers you must apply to, the Early Years Register to look after children aged 5 and under the Childcare Register to look after children from 5 to 7 both registers to look after children of all ages The Early Years Register is for children from birth up to the 31 August after their 5th birthday.
“Kiddy Thinks” In “Kiddy Thinks”, Alison Gopnik discusses the stages of thinking abilities of babies and young children. Using examples from her personal experiences as a parent and her experiments as a developmental psychologist, she defines these stages and explains the learning processes that take place during them. Through process analysis, Gopnik develops her thesis that babies and young children use the same learning strategies as scientists. Gopnik explains the stages of cognitive development for children from birth to the age of 4 years old. At birth, babies already know they are similar to other people.
What can parents and caregivers do to promote the development of remembering and problem-solving skills in young children? Give examples (3) of each type of activity. Caregivers can also support emotional understanding by labeling children’s feelings. Storybooks are effective inn helping to promote this type of development. Caregivers can introduce experiences requiring matching and sorting by size, shape, and color introducing words to describe color, size, shape and texture and math words such as bigger, smaller,
Gopnik first uses a personal experience to captivate her audience then proceeds to provide scientific evidence on the psychological abilities of children, beginning with newborn babies to toddlers about the age of four. The author informs readers on the thought capabilities of children by providing examples of the changes in mind development in different age categories. She suggests that "newborn babies (the youngest tested was only 42 minutes old) can imitate facial expressions" (Gopnik, 238) and how children that are nine months old can already distinguish between internal feelings such as happiness, sadness and anger. Gopnik recaps experiments that discover how children have learnt about people's wants and how they may conflict with their own in this portion of her writing. Two year old children seem to turn intentionally difficult and challenge their parents constantly, letting desire take control.
Include the following: • Explain how families affect the development of infants and young children. • Evaluate different parenting styles and their influence on development during infancy and early childhood. Include which parenting style you feel is most effective and why. • Discuss early childhood education and its influence on cognitive development. • Include at least two references.
She explains the typical behavior, starting from when they can imitate facial expressions at birth, and then proceeding to discovering and differentiating others’ and their own emotions. They go on to learning and perfecting the concept of hiding. Gopnik was able to experiment with kids in the different age groups and provides the results to back up her theories. Another significant point that was brought up was the comparison of the thought process between babies and scientists. Babies and scientists “think, observe, formulate theories, make predictions, and do experiments.
Unit CYP 3.1 Understand child and young person development This unit provides knowledge and understanding of how children develop from birth to 19 years, including underpinning theoretical perspectives. It also includes actions taken when differences in development are identified and the potential effects of transition on children and young people’s development. 1 Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people from birth to 19 years . 1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth to 19 years you need to show development for children from birth to age 19 that covers the development areas. You can either write per development area eg communication, physical, intellectual, social & emotion and moral and what development you would expect to see for each age group or you can write per age group eg birth to 3 months what communication development would you expect, what physical development you would expect to see etc.
EDU10002 Understanding Language and Literature Assessment 1 There are many theoretical perspectives explaining how children develop and acquire language. Two well recognised cognitive psychologists, Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, developed theories that addressed cognitive development and learning among children. Both theorists explore the development of a child’s way of thinking and examine the processes in how these developmental stages occur and impact on a child’s acquisition of language. Whilst there are similarities between the two theories, there are also significant differences. Language acquisition is the cognitive process where humans acquire the ability to perceive and comprehend language, as well as to produce and use words and sentences to communicate with one another (Friederici 2011).
Assignment 023 Understand Child and Young Person Development A1. Below is a table that shows the sequence and rate of development for children and young people from birth to 19 years. Physical development | Intellectual and cognitive development | Communication development | Social, emotional and behavioural development | Moral development | 0 – 3 months Baby begins life in reflex mode. Reflex actions such as suckling, rooting enable baby’s survival. | Baby may recognise smell and sound of mother, baby stops crying when it hears a familiar voice.
These include auditory assessments, health assessments - these include height, weight, and head measurements and tests carried out by educational psychologists. Many children at schools will be assessed by using Cognitive Aptitude Tests. It is said that in the early years sector, monitoring and assessing children should be carried out by a wide range of people who are involved in the child's
