The purpose of this assignment is to help you think critically about social-emotional development and social competence, as well as explore methods early childhood teachers or caregivers can use to support development.
After Deva’s visits to the three early childcare centers and a home-based childcare setting, she appreciates the importance of her staff understanding developmentally appropriate practices to meet the social-emotional, physical, and language and cognitive skills of infants and young children. For this critical thinking assignment, you will develop a PowerPoint presentation for her to present to her staff.
