Diverse Learning Environment
Curriculum for babies?” The answer is “Yes.” The development that occurs from birth to 3 years lays the foundation for all later learning (National Research Council and Institute of Medicine, 2000). To ensure an effective foundation for later development and success, infant/toddler experiences should be designed to meet the individual needs of each child.
Because the developmental foundation built during this period has lifelong implications, the responsibility for children’s learning while in out-of-home care is too significant to be left to chance. An individualized curriculum provides a way for teacher-caregivers to be intentional about the way they support development and learning in children under 3 and ensures that all aspects of development are being monitored and appropriately supported in a variety of ways.
The first three to six years play a key role in a child’s life as they begin to absorb the world around them and develop. These experiences that children have early in their lives affect their physical, cognitive, emotional and social development. Children develop the healthiest when they are provided environments in which they can explore the world around them, play with others, and learn to speak and listen to others. To ensure the future success of a child, it is important to provide a strong start by providing experience which are based on sound theoretical foundations and are developmentally appropriate. Preschool is an important stage which lays the foundation for life-long learning and all round development of the child. It is also the starting point of formal education. What the child needs at this stage is a curriculum that is play based and caters to the all round development. This will enable the child to be better prepared to meet not only the immediate challenges of the primary education but also of life-long learning
