I choose to interview Mary from the Fresno City College child development center. Mary works with toddlers who are 2 years of age.

I also noticed while observing Mary, that she seems to deal each of the students differently according to what needs that need to be met and how each of the students learning is different. Mary is well organized and has a strategic schedule that she goes by.
The Need for Quality Daycare Daycare has become a controversy because of the great quantity of advantages and disadvantages that it involves. While a very large number of parents have to rely on child care centers because of career ambitions or financial needs that only their jobs can fulfill, most child psychiatrists believe that the ideal growing environment for an infant is at home with the family. The problem is that choosing the right caregiver, a good substitute for the parents, is very hard, and the consequences of a wrong decision can be very detrimental to the child’s personality development. This choice depends on many factors like culture, education and especially income. In fact, the financial availability plays the most

1. Context/ Introduction: For my third observation, on Monday October 17th, I returned back to the Kean University Child Care Center. Just like my second observation I came for my observation for the hour of 10:30-11:30 am. This time in the classroom there was four teacher aides and the teacher Ms. Kierah. When I walked into the classroom I was surprised when one of the teacher aides told me that Ethan has a lot of energy in class that day. She explained that Ethan had a lot of energy that his listening skills were a little off as well. Once she was done explaining this I was anxious to see this for myself. I saw Ethan was playing at the middle table with one other boy Steve. Quietly, I sat at the table to the right of the middle table and began my notes.
Observation is very important in young children because that is how you get to know a child better. While observing how a child interacts with their peers, adults, and how they behave in different settings, you are getting to know the child without speaking to them.
The interviewee My interviewee is a close friend of mine, she is a Curtin university student, as well as working at a daycare center. Her job involves working with children from 0-3 years of age. She provides care and guidance for children as well as teaching kids primary and essential knowledge from young age. She deals with all types of children and she observes the children’s behaviors on daily basis, as this is a important role for her job. In the past she has spent time observing specifically autistic children, she explained how fascinating she found autistic children, and that she would like to learn more about their condition. She explained how often she has to try harder to explain simple things to autistic children, by repeating herself several times, showing him/her examples of her instructions. She also told me how as soon as autistic children understand her instruction, follow her rules to the best of their ability, often doing an excellent job. She said that its as almost if these children are adults, for example when she tells children “it is home time, time to put away all the toys”. Autistic children put the toys exactly where they got them from often in an organized manner. After that I asked her if she is interested in knowing more about autism. she explained her knowledge of autism is limited and that she would like to know why autistic children, have an excellent performance in areas such as, music, art, math and perform poorly in other areas such as,
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.").

There are two male East African teachers and a Latino female teacher assistant. The main teacher set up assignments for the class and the second teacher helps the students to complete their assignments most of the time. The job of the teacher assistant is to help set up student’s food and help with any language barrier between Latino students and the main teacher.
The Early Development and Learning program follows the Early Childhood Education program with the exception of the student teaching experience. Early development and learning majors take part in an internship. Students of this major are not eligible for teaching certification.
Early childhood is a time full of curiosity, exploration, creativity, excitement, and rapid development. During these formative years, children develop attitudes about education that remain with them for the rest of their lives (Kostelnik, Soderman, & Whiren, 2011). High quality early childhood education programs and highly effective, passionate teachers or care providers will not only promote young children’s development and academic achievement but will also foster a lifelong passion for learning. ECE programs and educators utilize learning centers to contribute to young children’s acquisition of literacy, numeracy, creative thinking, problem solving, and motor skills as well as a number of other skills and knowledge (Jarrett, 2010).
