      Observation and documentation helps early learning providers interact with the children in developmentally and age appropriate ways to continue their journey of learning and development. Each child is vastly different on this continuum of development, so having knowledge of their place along the continuum is paramount to creating an environment and providing materials conducive to their learning.

    It is important to observe children as each child is vastly different from the other. When observing a child you can learn about how they learn, the functions of their behaviors, and more. It is through documentation that you are able to log data on these individual pieces that you are observing about a child.
