    Observing and documenting a child’s development helps early learning providers in several ways, including identifying areas where a child may need additional support or challenge, tracking progress over time, building relationships with families by sharing information about their child’s development, and informing curriculum planning to better meet the needs and interests of each child.

    Children develop at different rates than their classmates. It is important to observe and document each child to see how they are progressing and offer additional support in areas they are struggling with. It also gives the provider an overall view of the class to see if they should move forward with more challenging things.

    Observation is key in the curriculum cycle. By using a anecdotal record we can track the differences in strengths and areas for improvement which then can allow us to develop lesson plan specific to that Childs needs.

    Observation and documentation is part of a cycle that feeds into curriculum development and classroom preparation. After implementing new curriculum and classroom set up/structure more observations will help educators see what is working, what should continue to change, and how the changes are fostering the development of the children.

    Observing and documentation enables providers to understand where a child is at developmentally, and it allows the provider to plan activities that promotes the child’s development. It also allows teachers to get to know the child and to properly care for the child.

    Just like any other form of science observation is the first step in developing a hypothesis and an experiment. One cannot make assumptions based on previous observations either, because each child is an individual and deserves to be treated as such. Careful observation helps the childcare provider ensure the child is developing in a safe and nurturing environment at a steady pace. Children who need special attention will be noted given the attention and direction they need to be successful.

    Observing and documenting a child’s development is crucial for early learning providers as it helps with individualized support. You are able to assess and evaluate the children’s progress which aids in curriculum planning, early intervention and help with developmental delays, and parent communication with relaying progress reports.
