Personal Philosophy of Education

My personal philosophy for education is to provide a positive learning experience for children from infancy - age 12. I started teaching because I felt that I could help educate young children to make a difference in their lives at the start of their learning process. Parents are encouraged to participate as well. I feel that so many children are neglected and don’t have the
Opportunity to learn in a positive and loving environment. I previously worked with the elderly in a home care environment but my main goal was to work with young children.

I love all children and I knew that I had something to offer them and my community. Children need someone to speak for them early in ...view middle of the document...

With the right environment a child can grow and become a productive member of society.

I have been influenced by the Montessori approach: Montessori believed in a prepared environment, self correcting and sequential materials, teaching based on observation and a trust in children’s drive to learn. She believed that any task could be reduced to a series of small steps. But the Montessori approach addresses only one educational philosophy which is the physical, mental and spiritual development of a child. (Montessori 1878 - 1952). I work with a mixed age group and they seem to learn in the same manner Montessori observed. As Katz stated the intention is to capitalize on the differences in age experience, knowledge and ability of the children (Katz, 1995)

I respect that there are many different approaches to learning therefore I believe in incorporating other ideas into my curriculum. All children are not created equal but I believe they will benefit more from watching others participate and learn.

I believe that a child starts learning at infancy, and it is our responsibility to teach them and to keep them safe. The parent is the child’s first teacher. I advise my parents to play with their babies, hug and cuddle them as often as possible.

The Value of Early Childhood Education
Most children begin receiving formal education during kindergarten. Recent scientific research has proven that learning and mental development begin immediately after birth. During the first three years of a child’s life, essential brain and neural development occurs. Therefore, children greatly benefit by receiving education before kindergarten.

Since kindergarten begin around the ages of 5 to 6 for most children, after major brain development occurs, parents should begin educating children at younger ages.

Many parents begin educating their children during these important developmental years. However, many parents neglect to take the time to educate their young children. Many factors can contribute to this, such as long work schedules and ignorance about the importance of educating children at a young age. (The Value of Early Childhood Education)
