A professional educator will actively view the child’s in association with their family and environment. They need to be viewed in context with their family as this will make the educator aware and respect the values and culture of each family and student. Principle 2 of the EYLF mentions ‘Learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when Early Childhood Educators work in partnership with families’ (EYLF, 2009, p12). This is mostly effective when a successful educator uses strategies that actively involves the family, by introducing families to the classroom through plan programs that invites parent input.

The Early Childhood Education program at Carlow University focuses on educating children from birth to grade four in any context—school, family, or community.

After graduating from Ashford University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development; , I am hoping to obtain a job working in the Public school system alongside the Pre-k teachers in implementing programs for Pre-k or become an owner of a childcare center. The nature of families and children in relation to society is important for my profession because in order to help improve the childcare center. I also hope to develop programs for Pre-k that children and their families will benefit from.

For this outcome, I chose the CE101unit 6 assignment. I select this artifact because I provided information in childcare laws, early intervention and family services programs that promote family participation. This artifact shows my knowledge, commitment and desire to help families to find high quality childcare and resources within the community. It’s necessary to be aware of the resources that promoted family participation and address families concerned. One of the programs is known in Louisiana as “EarlySteps”. EarlySteps urges families to participate because they believe families are the child’s best advocates, also strongly ask that families always communicate any burden they may have. As teacher we have the opportunity to work with families
“Play is developmentally appropriate for primary-age children and can provide them with opportunities that enrich the learning experience” (Copple & Bredekamp 2009). Early childhood education holds two main focuses; a child-based focus and a family-based focus. Early childhood education has positive outcomes on the child through their learning experiences, and their growth and development. Based on the family, the results of early education happen through the communication that the family has with the educators and by the encouragement they get from within themselves, and also from the educators.
Although our textbook discusses the issue of continuity between home and program in both aspects; pros and cons, but I feel that when looked at from a cultural point of view, this factor can be very vital in early childcare. In my opinion, in infancy and through toddler years children need to be in more familiar environments especially if they come from a culture that is minority. When children see adults who are from the same culture, speak the same language and have values that are similar to what they have seen at home, they feel at home and above all they stay connected with their language and culture. This similarity can also create a very positive experience for the young children who see role models in the adults in the childcare centers
The authors reached that parents need to be involved early on in the child’s schooling. This way, the parent knows what the child is learning and can help the child with problems in academic and social live at preschool. Head start is one of the main preschools that use parent involvement. Head Start uses family involvement to be a c cornerstone of their approach, with workshops, family involvement in classrooms, mandated involvement on committees, and family liaisons designed specifically to foster involvement. The authors of the article I am doing, did a study on the relation between parents that were involved with their children in preschool and showed how it helped the children, harmed the children, and also what factors were. They
This week in class we discussed early childhood and development. We also read chapter 15 in Development of Children and Adolescents and had our second trial of discussion about, “Are Father’s Really Necessary?”, where my partner Kelly Bruner and I had the yes section this time. We also discussed our final individul projects concerning our final paper. The final paper is around twenty-five pages that include ten scholarly sources. This paper is about your life, including a title page and an abstract on your sources. This paper is due Monday of finals week by midnight. Also, the last week of classes we will receive twenty-five points extra credit for attending class.
“Increasing families’ participation in their children’s early learning and development reaps powerful benefits (Mustard 2006, Greenspan & Shanker,2004). Families provide both learning and care. ‘Learning begins as infants seek patterns and begin to recognize the familiar voices and faces of family
Interning at the TMC Head Start My internship experience Pre-Kindergarten students it provided me with a cumulative opportunity to integrate all I had learned at University of Houston-Victoria and apply it in a practical setting. Since most of my coursework revolved around the social, emotional, and moral development of children, my paper focuses on the importance of classroom community in schools. Through journaling, observing, and working directly with Pre-Kindergarten students, I discovered how classroom community can facilitate learning, promote social awareness, and provide much needed stability.
Family plays a vital role in many of the childrens’ lives. They value their family and emphasize the importance of it from childhood through
Because young children lives are fixated in their communities and families, teachers need to be able to understand and apply building family and community relationships. Successful early childhood teachers are required to have a strong understanding of family structures, home language, cultural values, and community resources affect children and their families (Workshop Teacher Handout: From - Building Family and Community Relationship, 2002). The purpose of this paper is to provide you with some of the resources that are available in Goldsboro, NC and how they will
Children’s lives are centered initially within their families, the family environment becomes the primary agent of socialization. The family environment “involves the circumstances and social climate conditions within families. Since each family is made up of different individuals in a different setting, each family environment is unique. The environments can differ in many ways. For example, one obvious difference lies in the socio-economic level. Some families live in luxurious twenty-four-room estates, own a Porsche and a Mercedes in addition to the family mini-van and can afford to have shrimp cocktail for an appetizer whenever they choose. Other families live in two-room shacks, struggle with time payments on their used ‘85 Chevy and have
