Childrens Development Report Assessment

This assignment involves the report and evaluation of one observed focus child from your placement at a long day care/kindergarten (for Early Years students) in relation to how educational practices can impact the child’s development. The educational practices include curriculum design and pedagogical practices that are implemented in the learning and teaching contexts.

This assignment supports unit learning outcomes 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Students who successfully complete this Unit should be able to:

APA7 style should be used

  1. articulate knowledge and understanding of multiple theoretical and sector perspectives that underpin child growth, health and wellbeing
  2. apply insights into different theories and their application to child growth, health and wellbeing in diverse cultural contexts
  3. link theoretical knowledge and skills on child development to curriculum design and pedagogical practices
  4. apply theoretical knowledge and skills to support the developmental and learning needs of diverse children.

Assessment Detials;

For this assignment, the report you will complete must be based on the observable evidence of your focus child’s learning in the context of learning and teaching that happens in the daycare/kindergarten.

In completing this report, you will first need to identify the learning and teaching issues and the child’s developmental characteristics that may have impacted the child’s learning. This identification will lead to developing an appropriate support/learning plan for your focus child.

Important note: In cases where placements are delayed, a hypothetical case study of a relevant aged child will be accepted to complete this assignment.

Report structure

Your report needs to include the following four parts:

Part 1: Introduction (approximately 200 words) – This part requires you to state the purpose of your report and describe the context of your teaching practice. You will also introduce your focus child and their profile including their pseudonym, age, sex, brief family background and general behaviour. 

Part 2: Child and learning (approximately 800 words) – This part of your report involves identifying the child’s developmental characteristics that may have impacted the child’s learning. This is to be completed through observation of your choice and how you might document this for the planning of future learning. You should also Include the next steps for learning and development linking concepts covered in the unit in this part of your report.

Part 3: Discussion (approximately 700 words) – This part of your report involves identifying the learning and teaching issues and child’s developmental characteristics that may have impacted the child’s learning by:

  • identify and discuss how your focus child learned or did not learn in the context of learning and teaching
  • discuss in detail the educational practices including the type of curriculum implemented and the way your child was taught
  • identify and rationalise the child’s developmental characteristics including the child’s developmental strengths and interests that may have impacted the child’s learning
  • support your discussion with readings and literature that are relevant.

Part 4: Conclusion (approximately 300 words) – The final part of your report requires you to write a conclusion where you reflect on your role as a teacher in relation to child development. When completing your reflection ponder on what have you learned from your teaching practice and how learning about child development and their learning characteristics can assist you in becoming a professional teacher. Think of the challenges that you faced in relation to understanding child’s learning and their development in the context of educational practices in your State or Territory/Australia.

Citing sources and referencing

Note: You must draw upon the essential unit readings, relevant curriculum, course materials, and other contemporary literature to complete your report. You must include a reference list that cites all sources of information you used according to APA 7th Edition referencing conventions. Your reference list should be on a separate page and will not be included in the word count.

Supporting resources 

Throughout your teaching and learning journey, you will be required to use your relevant national and/or state or territory curriculum. To help you further build capability in this area, and to prepare you for placements, at Swinburne Online you may choose to use your state/territory-based curriculum document, or the Australian Curriculum in your assignments.
