Tutor description

I had the privilege and joy of spending time with the 3 and 4-year old group to study these inventive, enthusiastic, bright children. Normally, I work in the nursery so it was exciting for me to become more acquainted with a different age group and discover the many things these children are capable of. I have observed these children in 10 areas of development, observing what they can do at this stage in their life, and predicting what they will be able to do next. In the following pages are summaries of each area of development along with photos, quotes and observations of how the children demonstrate their capabilities. Through spending time with these children I have learned that they are capable of so much and it would be a shame to underestimate them.

Hand-eye co-ordination is a small muscle skill in which the hands perform tasks guided by the eyes requ
