In centers and family child care homes, early childhood professionals are simultaneously caregivers and teachers.
It is important that the environment respect and value the diversity that children and families bring, and build upon their unique strengths. The focus of the learning environment is on activities and settings that are interesting and important to the child and family. Each child is a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of growth. Each child develops and learns at a different rate and in different ways. Developmentally appropriate programs plan for individual differences among children, including:
individual personality, temperament and learning style
experiences and family background, including language, culture, and ethnicity
special health considerations, including food allergies
physical or cognitive disabilities
preferences based on child and family interests
The learning environment helps develop individual children’s potential. Some children may have a developmental delay or disability that requires program staff to make changes in materials, routines or experiences so that all children will be successful.
Times shown are Pacific Standard Time. If you are in Central or Eastern Time, you will need to adjust the time accordingly.
