One of the areas that we must work with children from practically their birth is the knowledge of oneself and the world that surrounds them, although they are already prepared to develop the different knowledge, even if we do not help them. And it is that nature is very wise.
One of the most surprising things about working with children from 4 months is their evolution. Babies from the beginning are acquiring a series of knowledge, which adults do not usually consider, at least until they have their first child. Seeing how children see their little hands for the first time, and of course, they do not realize that they are part of it. The same with their feet, or even, when they try to gauge the distances and control their body with their brain.
These first years of life are essential for the child to develop their motor skills, their personal image and their position in front of the rest of society. They are very complex processes that nature makes it very simple for the baby.
If a child does not go to daycare, it is obvious that he will have no problem achieving all these goals. Since our brain is programmed with a series of natural instincts, which make the child tend to learn without knowing why. One of the most important points for the knowledge of oneself and everything that surrounds us. It is the curiosity of the human being.
Many times we talk about how gossipy we adults are. It turns out that this comes from 'series'. Curiosity will be the engine for children's learning. The desire to investigate and understand, curiously, diminishes with age in many people. And it will be what will make us more comfortable and it will be when the learning ends. If we never lose curiosity, we will never stop learning.
But, if the child learns alone. What do you do in kindergarten to enhance self-learning? It is very simple, the motivation. Not all children are equally curious. In kindergarten, they are encouraged, given more to investigate in an organized way. With which we achieve a more effective learning for the future. In addition, each child has their own needs. That is why we must treat each one in a different way. Thus, for example, a child may have less strength in the legs. With which we will try to do more exercises with the legs, to advance the delay.
But, there is a more important point in self-knowledge. Children during the first years of life, will form their personal image. With which they identify themselves. If the child creates a bad image, later it will be more difficult to change it. With which we must work and motivate the child in everything we can. For example, to shy children, we should help them to socialize.
Before the age of 3, it is much easier for us to eliminate shyness than when the child is 10 years old. Many times, we look at the first cycle of early childhood education as a place for the child to play with children and be entertained. And we do not realize that during these first 3 years, what we are doing is setting the fundamental pillars of education, to begin to learn and to relate.
