Why We Need this Seminar-Workshop?
Young children are born learners. Although individual differences are present at birth, most set out to explore their world with eagerness and curiosity. Perhaps more than any other time of life, early childhood is a period of never ending possibilities. Similarly, most early childhood educators happily embrace their work, because everyday brings the chance to share in children’s excitement of discovery. We enter and stay in the field because we believe that our work can make a significant difference in the lives of children and their families, and so make a profound and lasting contribution to society.
But whether we make that difference in young children’s lives is not assured. Children are born learners, but for them to actually learn and develop optimally requires us to provide them with care and education of the highest quality.
Developmentally appropriate practice is a term that has come to be used within the profession to describe the complex and rewarding work done by excellent early childhood educators. Seeing children joyfully, physically, and intellectually engaged in meaningful learning about their world and everyone and everything in it is the truest measure of our success as early childhood educators. It is through developmentally appropriate practice that we create a safe, nurturing, and supportive place for young children to experience those unique joys of childhood.
