All children are not same. They have their own special interests and intelligences. Letting them grow the way they want is very important to pave the way for their bright future. Therefore, the parents and teachers should be able to observe their abilities, intelligences and passions and guide them in the right direction.

Teachers should harness individual children’s interests to make sure each child obtains the information most essential to his personal and individual development.

The well-known psychologist, Abraham Maslow, proposed the hierarchy of needs theory that includes five needs, namely physiological needs, safety needs, love and belonging needs, esteem needs and self-actualization needs. This theory could even be applied to child care and education. To fulfill these needs children, have to develop certain skills and abilities to pave the way for a bright future.

Inculcating skills among children:

Physical: the way in which a child develops biological and physical functions, including eyesight and motor skills could be influenced by encouraging them to get themselves engaged in various activities that improve the capabilities.

Social: the way in which a child interacts with others evolves over some years. Children develop an understanding of their roles, responsibilities and rights as members of families and communities, as well as an ability to associate with others and work with others. These social skills enable children to mingle with the other people and grow into physically and psychologically healthy adults.

Emotional: the way in which a child creates emotional connections and develops self-confidence. Emotional connections develop when children relate to other people and share their feelings.

Language skills: Language skills influence the way a child communicates, including how they present their feelings and emotions, both to other people and to themselves. In the first 3 years, children need to be encouraged to mingle with their peers and elders to enable them to pick up language. Normal language development is measured by the rate of vocabulary acquisition. Children during their early years don’t learn language, instead they catch it. They closely observe people in their immediate vicinity and try to imitate them. When children grow up in an isolated environment they don’t get adequate stimuli to acquire languages especially their mother tongue. Therefore, children should be encouraged to expose themselves to a lot of interpersonal interaction.

Cognitive skills: the way in which a child organizes information. Cognitive skills include problem solving, creativity and imagination. They embody the way in which children perceive this world and operate in it.

At Peapods Early Learning Centre our teachers closely observe the interests, abilities and intelligences of the children and inculcate the skills that empower them to operate effectively in this world.
