A Positive Approach on Daycare Facilities - In today's society dual income families are far more common than 50 years ago. Children are no longer staying at home with their mom while dad goes off to work. Parents are sending their children to daycare centers while both are “on the clock”. Today's society is seeing less of the traditional “stay-at-home-mom”. Parents are conducting research and choosing the right daycare center for their child; children are excelling academically and socially. In past years, society has put a negative perception in relation to daycare centers....   [tags: Daycare ]

The Effect of Daycare on the Parent-Child Relationship - ... Disorganized children often raise red flags to caregivers and teachers that something may not wrong at the child’s home. A study (Barglow, Vaughn, Molitor 1987)stated beginning a daycare center before the age of 12 months is associated with elevated incidents of insecure avoidant relationship between parent and child. This occurrence of insecure avoidant relationship does not result from poor parenting but rather the stress of routine separations from their parents. Another research study (Egeland, Heister 1995) found that having a secure attachment to an alternative caregiver, might lead to an anxious attachment with the mother....   [tags: child guidance, daycare center, childhood]

I Was a Big Kid: Giving Others in Daycare Back Rubs - Looking back the whole idea is rather condescending. Still, I think this would have been the first time I felt like a big kid. At four and three-quarters years old it’s hard to feel grownup; you don’t have enough years behind you. Also at that age you only have about two years of memory. That’s why I felt so incredibly mature and wise when the teacher would pick me to go rub backs. I attended preschool through kindergarten in a small private school. The two and three year olds actually napped, but the rest of us big kids just rested....   [tags: daycare, childhood,] 772 words

Transitioning a Child To Daycare - When a parent leaves their child off at a daycare, they often wonder why their child who was happy and content before they arrived cries and screams when their parent leaves to go to work. This is a very hard transition for infants, which is why it's our job as infant toddler teachers to make the transition as comfortable and relaxing as possible. The reason children feel this way when their parents leave is because they are in what Piaget calls the sensorimotor stage, and are in the beginning of object permanence meaning that an infant realizes something is their even though they cannot see it....   [tags: Child Development] 527 words

Daycare and Separation Anxiety: A Brief Overview - Numerous advances led to Sigmund Freud’s inspirational Stages of Psychosexual Development, and it was Freud that introduced a clear theory explaining the process by which infants develop into adults. The transition from the Oral, Anal and Phallic stages begins to help us understand some of the processes that might lead to understanding attachment issues. Freud argued that humans are born “polymorphously perverse,” the idea that any number of objects could be a source of pleasure. While relief from stress observed in a child might be interpreted as simply the absence of emotional pain, on a deeper level, re-attachment and physical closeness to a caregiver after prolonged separation should res...   [tags: Child Care, Psychosexual Development] 2117 words

Early Childhood Education: Learning is Child’s Play - Learning is Child’s Play It took me some time to decide what I would like the thrust of this paper to be on. And though I tossed several ideas around- how children play- kept circling back around. I feel that, letting children play is vital to healthy development. Some have even argued that play is the primary way that children learn verbal and logic skills. Playing with other children also expands a child’s understanding of him/herself and others (Fernie 2000). So, throughout my placements I noted the differences in how children play....   [tags: child observation, elementary education] 929 words

Day-care is Good for Children - Day-care is a place where children ranging from as little as one month, to any other age, are taken care of during the day. This could be due to the parents being too busy to take care of them during the same time, either due to work, school, or other time consuming obligations. Day-care therefore provides alternative care for little children, when their parents are away. This is widely criticized by a large number of people who believe that children should not be left under the care of strangers....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Argument Essays]

According to Shepard 2001, child socialization is defined as a close interaction with a small number of people-none of whom the child has selected-where the child learned to think and speak, internalizes norms, beliefs, and values; forms some basic attitudes; develops a capacity (or incapacity) for intimate and personal relationships; and acquires a self-image. In the past, a child may have learned to be social through relationships at home, at school and at church....   [tags: Sociology Sociological Essays]

After School Programs - I rested my head up against the frosted window feeling the cool December temperature against my forehead. The bus hums to a stop and signalis traffic to slow down. I watch as a young bundled up boy stands up and shuffles down the aisle, stopping only to heave his backpack onto his shoulder again and say thank you to the busdriver. I can smell the diesel fumes that surround the boy as he walks to his mail box. In one hand he grabs a pile of envelopes and shifts through them mindlessly.

Bronfenbrenner Bioecological Systems Theory: The Impact on a Child’s Development - The birth of a new child usually brings jubilation to the parents. After all of the initial celebrations have ended, and the parents bring the infant home, this is when the child’s development begins. Even before the celebrations begin, the child’s development begins at the fetal stage (Boyd, Johnson, & Bee, 2009). Bronfenbrenner’s Systems theory describes how external environments and individuals affect the development of a child (Boyd, Johnson, & Bee, 2009). The relationships are interconnected among all individuals and their environments (Boyd, Johnson, & Bee, 2009)....   [tags: Child Development ]

Parents and caregivers are an extremely important piece of this environmental input and the best way for caregivers to teach their children language is to simply talk to them—a lot. We know that children often say their first word between the ages of 11 and 14 months, and there continues to be a lot of variability in language development; is this a result of nature or nurture....   [tags: Child Development]
