ECED 263 ~ Part Two

Learning and Developing from Birth to Age 8: Who we teach


Informed decisions about who we teach

Developmentally appropriate: Consider what is known about development and learning of children within a given age range

Individually appropriate: Consider what is known about each child individually ~ personality, strengths, interests, abilities

Culturally appropriate: Consider what is known about the social and cultural contexts in which children live ~

Knowledge is substantial and changes over time!

Informed Decisions about who we teach


Applying what we know about children s learning and development

Why study child development

Why study child development?

  • Grow & Change is rapid from birth – 8 yrs.

  • Helps teachers in many ways:

  • Set and evaluate achievable goals in an age range & challenge children

  • Accurately interpret children’s behaviors

  • Base planning on predictable sequences of development & learning

  • Predict kinds of experiences that are interesting & meaningful
