After completing my modules for ECE 209 lecture and seminar, I’ve learned how to analyze the use of social power responsibility, exploring more ways to create partnerships with families, identifying the essential elements for infant classrooms, and being able to provide infants and toddlers with a variety of open-ended materials that will allow children to explore and manipulate the materials in ways that are meaningful to them and is suited to their developmental level. After watching the Let’s Talk About Environments video, I gathered more information in ways to send messages of security, trust and comfort whether the children can move and explore along with finding out how physical environments impact relationships between children and adults. This information helps and supports me to meet my goals by being able to develop an environment/curriculum that supports infant learning and well-being.
