Relationship building

Both children and adults in an early childhood setting need to feel important. Children need to enjoy being in school, and love the interactions that take place. Teachers should also be able to enjoy being with other teachers, to enjoy watching children stretch their strengths and use their intelligence.

When a child feels that his or her efforts, intelligences and energy are valued, they become the child’s foundation of strength. This joy the child receives, is indeed one of the bases for learning.

What we want to do, is to activate within children, the desire and will, and not forgetting the great pleasure that comes from being the authors of their own learning. We need to learn how to recognize a new skill, how to wait for a child. While this may appear to be passive to the untrained eye, but it is really a very strong activity on our part, as educators.
