Developmentally appropriate practice can be hard to spot by the untrained eye. For example, I have had parents of my preschoolers ask if their children do anything else other than just play. Some parents don’t understand the children learn through play. Some parents feel that if the children are not learning their alphabets, numbers, colors, etc. then they are not learning. I try explaining to them that although each child develops at their own pace, they all develop in a sequential, predictable manner and they tend to reach milestones in a predictable pattern. I explain the importance of observing and documenting the physical, emotional, and cognitive development of each child in my care to ensure that I am providing the best learning environment possible. Although I am the decision maker in my classroom, I always take into account the individual learning styles of each child in my care, as well as any social or family

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
