I set goals for all the children in my care and we are constantly working toward them each day. When I began this project with the child I set them goals after I seen they were capable of completing the present goal. I think the benefits form this is a positive step forward for the children and their learning goals.
Why you have chosen to be in the field. Children in this field can develop a positive self-esteem, foster a love of learning, and develop important social skills. I choice the field of child development because preschool age children are eager to learn and a joy to teach. I enjoy creating developmentally appropriate activities for children. They enjoy a variety of activities and need to be guided through play. The qualities most preschoolers share are they love to take on roles such as a mommy, teacher, or other grown up role, they want to please the adults and they are learning to communicate their needs. Early childhood education research shows children who attend preschool programs are more likely to succeed in many things such as going to college, graduate high school, staying out of prison. Children will learn important social skills that may help them such as learning good manners at snack, raising their hand during circle time, and many other skills. I plan to further my education by reading books by child development experts, taking more child development classes/workshops and professional development workshops as needed.
In summary I believe to be an Early Childhood Educator one has to be able to keep up with everything. There is no single purpose to educate, but if I had to choose a soul representative it would be to shape our world. Children’s needs must be met in order to do that. To be am Early Childhood Educator one has to be patient, patient, and patient. Putting all of these things together gives one the end product of a successful
Being an early childhood educator provides me with the opportunity to share my love of learning while guiding my students to also become a lifelong autonomous learner. Being part of a great education system allows me to provide my students with what is needed most, a secure strong individual who cares not only for the academic success of my students but for the heart of my students as
I truly enjoy being able to support the children along their learning and discovering adventure with new concepts, ideas and experiences. The children should be introduced to understand about themselves so that they can learn who they are, who they can be and will be. It is a fulfilling feeling to know that as an early childhood educator, I can help to support the children to open their minds. At times, as cooperate in learning
In my early career in human services, I worked at The Coalition for the Homeless Nonprofit agency. I was based off site in a local shelter and worked within the Bound for Success program, an afterschool setting for children and youth ages 5 through 14. I provided intake assessments and case management to the children and their families. I worked with these families to provide direct and indirect services designed to meet the individual needs of the child. These needs included behavioral needs, educational needs, and/ or emotional needs. Working with this age group provided me with deeper insight into the psychology of child development. This knowledge is basic for guiding and understanding young children because an enormous amount of growth and change occurs during these years.
When working with other partnerships with in the setting you need to make sure that the planning for the children is correct for their age and for their development also the organisation for the children leaning need to be planed for each individual child.
The developmental theories can not be more evident than during the out of class assignment at the daycare facility. During this independent assignment, I was able to observe and interact with pre-school children in an environment that is both encouraging and facilitating to a child’s developmental growth. So, just as Piaget in his developmental theory believed that children takes an active role in the learning process, acting much like little scientists as they perform experiments, make observations, and learn about the world; the pre-school teachers allowed them to do just that. Indeed, the teachers at the day care provided room for the child to learn and explore while at the same time adhering to a structure that set boundaries and limitations. Thus, the pre-school children, begrudgingly, learns to follow a meticulous schedule of activities and rest.
| Peer centred relationships now of high importance. Peer acceptance of great importance to self esteem. An interest developing in sexual relationships, experimenting may start to occur. Peer groups begin to separate in those of attraction, mutual interests and more closely bonded friendships made. The youth experiments with social roles and explores options for career choice.
Observer visited a play place of a restaurant in New Jersey, Hackensack. Why I have chosen the place is easy to observe every part of child development such as cognitive, social emotional, language as well as physical at the same time. Observer performed the observation on April 28 from 1 pm to 3pm. The child was an Asian boy. He has strait short black hair with dark brown eyes and thin black eye brows. His height looked around 37 inches that he may be a little smaller than other early childhood children. He looks thin and has a full set of teeth inside his mouth, full cheeks, and a small button nose.
Over the past eight weeks this class has not only fulfilled my major requirements, but also made me understand more about the complexity of child development and how I can become a better person as a future parent and educator. Since I am an Education major, the four topics that would benefit me in the future are Erikson’s stages, Induction, Educational Self Fulfilling Philosophy, and Adolescence. I plan to be successful with my career and use what I have learned in Child Development to prepare future’s leaders of tomorrow.
This semester in Child Development has helped me a great deal. I came into this class wanting to be a Child Development teacher at the high school level. I am leaving this class with the same ambition to become a Child Development teacher. I have learned so much by taking this class and I know it will all be helpful in the future once I am standing at the front of a classroom. Also, just by watching the way Mary teaches the class, I have learned things that I want to take into my own style of teaching.
The birth and growth of mankind are magical. During these eight weeks study, I found the huge interest in lifespan human development. This course taught me the “roots” of human beings. Until now, I realized how human was born, and I also learn a lot about human development and possible diseases in each period. Besides, I learned the research process. They are really wonderful knowledge and helpful to me!
