“You’ve got the best of both worlds, mix it all together and you know that it’s the best of both, you know the best of both worlds.” (Nevil et.al, 2006). According to Hannah Montana you can have the best of both worlds. Kinderculture affects children from the very beginning of their lives, but how deeply do the messages from the Disneyfication of Kinderculture impact children’s lives? In the Kinderculture article by Henry A. Giroux and Grace Pollock they ask the question, “Is Disney good for your kids? How corporate media shape youth identity in the Digital Age.”
After viewing the multimedia presentation, and doing some research the two major contributors of early childhood field I chose to discuss is Lyndon B. Johnson of the Headstart sector, and Marian Wright Edelman of the health and Well Beings sector. Although, there are others who were major contributors to the childhood education sector. Lyndon B. Johnson, was born in Stonewall, Texas. After, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, he was sworn in as the 36th President.
The observation took place on January 27, 2016 at 7 o’clock at the Denny’s located at 894 Cypress Gardens Blvd, Winter Haven, FL. The child that is being observed seem to be between the ages of 2-3 years old. According to Erikson’s Stages of Development during this time the child is in the final process of the Toddler / Early Childhood Years which is also known as Autonomy vs. Shame - Will. During this stage kids are basically building self-esteem and autonomy as he or she learns new skills and right from wrong. Also during this time if the child is not learning certain skills as other are this can tend to make the child vulnerable during this stage, sometimes feeling shame and low self-esteem during an inability to learn certain skills. The
The date of my observation was April 27th, 2010. It was about 9:30 in the morning when I began my study. I went to Grossmont College’s Child Development Center. The first thing I began looking for was if the child-teacher ratio was correct. The child ratio was 2 teachers to about every 8 children. The ratio was good. As I entered there was one large room that almost looked as if it could be two rooms they way it was set up. One half consisted of a large bookshelf with numerous books on it with a couch in the front of it. The other half of the room was almost like a little kitchen. It had a table with chairs around it with a sink and cabinets behind it. There were “age appropriate” toys as well as books all over the
The Child Study data I have gathered comes from the observation I have completed at Mission Bell Elementary School. Mission Bell Elementary School is a local school in Riverside. In the P.M preschool class there are 24 students, one teacher, and one assistant. The child I decided to observe is names Zoe. Zoe is 4 years and 10 months old. I immediately was drawn to Zoe because she had such a big personality, was very social, and smart. I am glad that I choose to observe Zoe because she was able to make my observation process smooth and easy. While observing her I had to pay close attention to her biosocial development, motor skills, cognitive skills, communication skills,
During my observation at the preschool here at Harper, I looked around and realized a lot of similarities and differences it has; compared to other daycare and preschool centers. The age of children in the room I observed was ages 3-5 with one lead teacher, and depending on the ratio of how many kids showed up on that day, about three or four helping teachers. The program was set up to a very open, happy and overwhelming setting. Every furniture and object in the room had a sign saying what it was, and then underneath the typed out word was the children’s way of writing what the object was. For example, a book shelf was in the corner of the room; on the book shelf was the word printed out “Book
In the beginning, the Children’s Bureau was part of the Department of Commerce, but was later transferred to the Department of Labor in 1913. The law that brought the Children’s Bureau into existence also called for the Bureau to be headed by a Chief, who would be a Presidential appointee, subject to Senate confirmation. The first Chief of the Children's Bureau was Julia Lathrop, one of the Chicago women who helped lobby for the Illinois juvenile court. During the initial years, the Children’s Bureau took on as special projects child mortality, deaths of mothers in childbirth, child labor, and juvenile delinquency (Bradbury and Eliot, 1956). Through studies and surveys, as well as through public education programs, improvements were shown in
In the spring of 1990 in Edenton North Carolina seven people including the owners and the staff members of the Little Rascals Day Care Center had been arrested and charged with sexually abuse. The mother Audrey Stever, who was concerned about her 3 year old Kyle reported the details of the abuse to authority. Seven staff members that worked in the Little Rascals day care were innocently accused of sexually abusing the majority of the children that attended the Little Rascals day care. This is a witch hunt because the co-workers were blamed. Put to jail, and judged for a crime they never committed.
Wonderful Kids Program, the destination families program also utilizes mental health services in the program. It has been shown that many of foster youth deal with mental issues “Seventy five percent (75%) of foster youth suffer from severe emotional disturbances” and additionally 65% of foster youth were evaluated as needing mental services but would rarely receive them ("The Foster Care Crisis."). The mental health team in the Destination Family program specifically focuses on teenagers and helps these teens process through their past loss and grief, attachment and bonding difficulties, along with support and stabilizing the teenagers. They also assist in preparing teenagers for permanency and helping them understand the importance of finding a forever family. The
Many children attend both three and four year old preschool. If you plan on switching to a new preschool for next school year, make sure you spend some time preparing for the transition. If you allow your child to saw goodbye to their old school friends, and allow them time to adjust to their new preschool, this transition will be a lot easier.

On November 13, 2014 at Grossmont College’s Child Development Center, I observed Konnor who was born on March 11, 2011. At the center, there are roughly around 15 children between the ages of three and five; there is one adult for every six or so kids. The preschool center’s indoor environment is safely secured with a locked gate that separates the outside door which leads to the younger children centers and parking lot with the hallway to the learning and play area. There are two separate rooms, but they both have screen doors that lead to the same play area outside. The room on the left, which Konnor is placed in, was smaller
I absolutely agree with you when you said that universal preschool for children are great. As Colker (n.d) characterizes it, “The term universal pre-K means that pre-K programs are available to any child in a given state, regardless of family income, children’s abilities, or other factors”. In your case, you were fortunate that you had your grandparents that could manage the cost of a pre-k program. Pre-K programs are outlined particularly to make sure that preschoolers are prepared for kindergarten and will be succeeding in school by third grade. As Colker (n.d) explains, all pre-K programs have three characteristics in common. They are represented by high program standards, they serve 4- year-olds or sometimes both 3- and 4- year–olds, and
Everett was an artist and poet who explored most of the west coast before mysteriously disappearing. No one ever knew what happened to Everett and search officials gave up. The search officials decided to randomly show up and see if there was anything new, and this is what was recovered.
