A History of Early Childhood – Johann Pestalozzi
Johann Pestalozzi was an 18th century educational reformer who believed that every child has the innate ability to develop emotionally, intellectually and physically when given education. Another belief of his is that true learning and development of a skill takes place best when a child is participating in an activity that requires the particular skill instead of the traditional passive form of education. (Brühlmeier, A. 2010)
His philosophy basically states that every child has the capacity to develop holistically through education. I find this to be true as this is basis on which modern education systems function and it has been

Careers in Early Childhood Education.
For any learning curriculum to be efficient there is a need for proper execution of set goals and objectives. These objectives act as a guidelines and basis for the institution, the teachers, and the learners. Objectives articulate the supposed learning programs and the proposed outcome of the learning process this can be defined by the knowledge or the skills obtain during the course. Hence, instruction objectives put emphasis on the impact of the learning process to the kindergarten student, hence concentrating on the outcome of the learning process other than then learning process its self.

Parenting and Education During Early Childhood
Religious, ethnic and economic cultures can all contribute to a preferred parenting style in a given region. Not all parents take the same approach to raising their children and it is important to note that scientist Diana Baumrind found that parents differ in four different dimensions (Berger, 2010). Expression of warmth, strategies for discipline, communication, and expectations for maturity are the important differences that occur within parenting styles. The three patterns of parenting were then determined based on these dimensions and are defined as authoritarian parenting, permissive parenting, and authoritative parenting (2010

Early Childhood Development and Social Inequalities
All families should have the same opportunities to live a descent life. But due to the backgrounds of some families, and children, they may not have a chance for this. There are certain risk factors that have a bearing on social inequalities in health, and particularly those that are prone to preventative intervention. There are many that I could talk about, but I have picked out four of these factors to talk about. They are biological factors, family and social factors, parenting factors, and

Early Childhood Guide
Planning a guide to early childhood program development is essential to serve as a tool for improving and developing high quality early childhood programs. It is essential for each childhood education setting to plan its program so as to facilitate achievements of the goals. Planning a curriculum should be a continuous process which involves identifying needs and capabilities of children, observation, provision of necessary resources, evaluation and assessment. To ensure that the curriculum goals are realized, childhood programs should be planned to offer sufficient learning experience for the children.

A good curriculum can offer the expert guidance, evidence of effectiveness and flexibility. It enables early childhood educators to draw upon a comprehensive view of early years education linked to their own observations and experiences; therefore educators set up and modify learning programs accordingly and timely (Early Childhood

Early childhood development
Cognitive development is highly reliant on intellectual and social stimulation. Early childhood education is typically the first experience a child has to a learning atmosphere that is socially and intellectually stimulating. Cognitive development evolves playing during recess, with other children, or practicing words. Young children often play activities such as mommy and baby or house with simulated characters (Berger, 2008). These young children are using imagery to apply activities from

22 million children under the age of five are at risk for obesity. Over the past few decades, the number of obese children in the United States alone has doubled. As early as 1983, 18% of school aged children in the United States were considered overweight children. By the year 2001, 8% of those children were considered obese. (Decklbaum and Williams p. 239S)
Childhood obesity is not just an illness; it is considered an epidemic in the United States due to the rapid increase in numbers over the past few decades. Bad eating habits are the number one cause of childhood obesity.

Early in the 20th Century, children attended either a local authority or voluntary school, and the majority left at age 12 or 13 (Cunningham,2003).

Maria Montessori’s establishment of the early childhood movement in 1907 had a great effect on education systems for young children and the teacher education. According to the International Montessori Index website (2010), she believed that children are born with “a unique potential to be revealed, rather than as a ‘blank slate’ waiting to be written upon”. After becoming a physician in 1896, she turned her focus to children’s education.

Since the late 1990s, there has been a proliferation of parenting discussion forums (BBS) on the Internet in China. On the BBS, many young parents with higher education keep records of their children’s development, socialize with other parents, first in the virtual space, then in real space., communicate knowledge of childrearing and ECE, and discuss and debate over many issues in early childhood. In an earlier paper of mine, I claim that the Internet provides a new kind of social space in which the young mothers assert their new identity

Research on brain development attests to the importance of key mental, physical and social capabilities. If these fundamental capabilities are not well established from the start, and especially if neurological damage occurs, a child's learning potential could be adversely be affected. As such, education in early childhood must have its own specific practices and issues.

The set-up of the environment, teacher expectations, available materials and opportunities, and daily schedule significantly impacts children's behavior in childcare.

When we see children play, we observe that they play physically with peers or adults or both at the same time. Children feel and express their emotions during play, through play and through their own ideas.

Education, UBE, came as a replacement for Nigeria’s Universal Primary Education scheme of the 6-3-3-4 system of primary education. The 9-3-4 system of education was designed in conformity with the MDGs and Education For All ,EFA (Kayode, 2006). The UBE involves 6 years of Primary School education and 3 years of Junior Secondary School education, culminating in 9 years of uninterrupted schooling, and transition from one class to another is automatic but determined through continuous assessment. This scheme is monitored by the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, and has made it "free" and a right of every child. Therefore, the UBEC law section 15 defines UBE as early childhood care and
