                                               My Specialty

My specialty is preschool-aged children. I have had experiences with various age groups, but I prefer working with children aged 3 to 5 years.  The program is Eastside Child Development Center located in Hegewisch, Chicago. At this program, we use age-appropriate activities that consider child development and ensure that a child is engaged to learn as an individual and as a member of the learning community. I prefer this specialty because this is a very crucial time in child development that has long-term benefits on an individual’s life if addressed adequately.

At first, regarding the NAEYC 12 Principles of Child Development and Learning, I choose the principle stating that all areas of development and learning are important (NAEYC). For children to become successful and productive members of society, they need a solid foundation where they acquire all necessary skills …………for help with this assignment contact us via Email Address:
