FCNS 230 – Child Development

Section 1: Introduction
This project is about seeing the development of children in their early stages. On March 15, 2016, I went to Loving Touch Daycare to observe Airiyelle Coleman. When I was a kid, I used to go to this daycare. Their curriculum is to help develop the social skills and teach the children the basic skills they need for when they go into kindergarten in elementary school. They learn new material each day and also retain previous information taught before. Before going into the observation, I did not know Airiyelle beforehand. I met her and her mom from the daycare director who let me come to do the observation. Airiyelle is two years old. She just turned two in January when I came to... View More »

Adaption is the adjustment to a new environment. When talking to her mother, she said that it hard for her to get into the room with the rest of the kids who she first going to the daycare. Using Piaget’s preoperational stage (the second stage), Airiyelle showed that her thoughts were limited by beliefs . She showed egocentrism, which is the inability to distinguish own perspectives from those of others. In Airiyelle’s case, one of the other children are playing with one of the toys that was out during playtime. Airiyelle took a toy that one of the other children were playing with out of their hand. The other child started to scream and then cry because of that. Airiyelle did not understand why the other child was acting the way that were. She also showed conservation. The next thing on the agenda was that the kids got to play with water or oatmeal at the table. I was able to pass out the materials to the children and I put oatmeal in a two tall containers, at the same amount. I showed her the containers and asked if they were the same and she said yes. Then I poured one of the containers in a shorter and wider container and I asked again if they were the same or different amounts. She same they were different amounts even though Airiyelle saw me pour the oatmeal into the wider container. She was unable to depict that the oatmeal was the same amount when changing its container. In Piaget’s preoperational stage, there are limits in pre operational thought. For Airiyelle, she showed she had limits with lack of hierarchy, ordinality, and cardinality. With the lack of ...

    Evaluating Children's Knowledge

    1773 words, 8 pages

    In this assignment I will endeavour to pinpoint two well-established areas of knowledge and two emerging areas of knowledge from watching two short observations of two different groups of children playing with blocks. I am aware that it would be 'unfair, from one activity with such little evidence, to draw firm conclusions about what these children actually know.' (Block 2, Part 2, Pg. 85) and therefore these are my opinions regarding the children's level of knowledge taken from two very brief observation. The first incident that I believe significantly demonstrates well-established knowled

    Participant Observation

    The problem is representativeness. It is not possible to generalise as the research carried out only gives information about a small group of people. Reliability is also a problem, the research depends on interpretation and the research carried out does not remain objective, the researcher may get to involved and lose sight of the initial purpose of the research; the term “going native.” A particular problem for overt observation (but also covert) is that the observer’s presence may inhibit the behaviour of the group; called the ‘Hawthorne effect,’ thus the research

    Understanding Human Development Birth To 6 Years

    2832 words, 12 pages

    Abstract This paper attempts to examine the biosocial, cognitive, and psychosocial development of children from birth to 6 years of age. Rapid development takes place during these stages, which makes it more important for caregivers to understand how to foster healthy development. This paper examines the rapid changes that take place within the first 2 years of life, and then compares it to the development of the 3 to 6 year age group. Fostering healthy development is extremely important in these young years because it will ultimately affect the child for the rest of his/her life.
