As an early childhood professional, I believe it is essential to understand this developmental process in children. This will help you assess your child’s proper development, understand what they can and cannot do, and better address each child’s needs and rights. As an early childhood professional, I develop and evaluate each child’s interests, strengths, skills, abilities, and knowledge to help them learn more effectively. I also think that the environment plays a role in the success of the early childhood program. It should promote children’s interest in all aspects of growth. Toddlers believe that being able to explore, visit, and revisit stations over and over again is the most effective way to learn. The environment should consider the child’s physical abilities or tasks, social skills, communication skills, and learning styles (Our Work, n.d.)
I also think that the family is an essential aspect of early childhood education. Parents who occasionally spend time in the classroom know more about their children’s day. Observing what is going on directly can help parents figure out what questions to ask their children at the end of the school day. They will be able to identify anything that is out of their kids’ normal behavior and address such issues.
The first year of a child’s life is a hectic one. I believe that learning is ongoing and intertwined with all aspects of development. These are social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and communicative abilities. As a result, the goal is to make this ongoing learning experience positive, safe, and enjoyable. Additionally, raising the whole child while attempting to take them to the next level of development with enthusiasm and confidence will be easier. Children, therefore, require the assurance and confidence that they will be cared for and loved while participating in the educational environment. I have a passion for teaching and helping children. Trust and security are also essential components of my relationship with my child.
