Child Development

What do we mean by Child Centered Approach?

The Child Centered approach allows the child to make choices and connections among ideas promoting communication. It allows freedom to think, experience, explore, question, and search for answers. It allows for creativity without the restrictions that things like instruction guides or worksheets offer. It celebrates child created works of art and structure.

This approach allows teachers to observe how play develops as opposed to directing play, ultimately encouraging children to become more creative and enhancing communicaion skills with one another.
