A. Reflect on the importance of a child centred approach There have been many theorists who have helped us to understand the importance of child centred learning and their research and theories are widely used to educated children today. Frobel believed that children learn through imaginary play and creative self activity and created the concept of the kindergarten which included singing, dancing, gardening and self directed play. Montessori believed that children’s natural curiosity should be encouraged and they should have the freedom of movement within the classroom and be taught through real play to encourage independence and life skills by using everyday objects like mops and sweeping brushes. Dewey believed that education and learning are an interactive process and children thrive when they are able to explore their environments, he believed that education should teach children to learn how to live. Dewey believed that the most effective way to teach was to link teaching to experiences to help the children relate to the new information. Dewey also raised the point that child based learning should be mixed with adult led learning to be affective and there should be a structured balanced between the two. Adult led learning

practitioners as there are many areas which the practitioners need to take in to consideration. The first area which is challenging for practitioners to meet is the individual needs of all children within the setting. If there is a setting which has 1/2 children who need special facilities to help them develop, it can be managed easily, however, if there are many children with different needs such as dyslexia, children on wheel chairs, autistic and visually impaired. This could be difficult to meet…
When working within an early years setting it is important to ensure that practitioners are proving a child centred approach as the child must always be at the centre of their learning.
Through children being the centre of their learning it will enable professionals to met the child’s individual needs and by doing this the professionals will also be listening to their child and valuing their own views and opinions. An example of this approach in an early years setting would be a…
