Teaching In The Infant Classroom.
Teaching infants requires a distinct skill set, setting it apart from teaching any other stage within the primary school curriculum. The Infant years wield an extraordinary influence on young learners, serving as a pivotal foundation for their entire educational journey. Unfortunately, this significance is sometimes underestimated. I firmly believe that the impact of what and how infants learn during these early years profoundly shapes the individuals they become, not to mention their attitudes toward learning.
Educating infants poses a unique challenge, of tapping into children's inherent drive for self-directed learning. As adults, we have the responsibility to foster and expand upon children's intrinsic capacities as learners, harnessing their natural inclination to question, innovate, and effortlessly engage with the intricacies of life. Here, I hope to share my personal experiences. Furthermore, I offer a platform on my Facebook and Instagrampages for fellow Infant teachers and parents to exchange teaching ideas and strategies. To effectively tailor your teaching to the early years (4yrs - 6yrs) , it's imperative to comprehend both their starting point and their developmental trajectory. Therefore, I aspire to collectively share pedagogical insights spanning from the pre-school years to 2nd class on this platform. Naturally, all educators, including parents, are warmly welcomed here.
