Food allergies, cultural and religious preferences, and vegetarian diets are common issues in a child care program.
Child care providers, center directors, and parents need to work together in order to ensure that children with special dietary needs receive appropriate foods.
When you talk with parents before enrolling the child, ask about these special practices, and discuss with the parents the best ways to accommodate these dietary changes.
Knowing families' practices will help you accommodate their preferences in your child care program.
Child care providers and directors should discuss the specific vegetarian diet with the parents, and decide how to accommodate the child's needs.When a child with a food allergy ingests that food, he may have an allergic reaction.Allergic reactions range from mild skin sensitivity to very severe symptoms, including difficulty breathing.Piaget was interested in how children organize “data,” and settled on two fundamental responses stimuli: assimilation of knowledge, and accommodation of knowledge.
Assimilation of knowledge occurs when a learner encounters a new idea, and must “fit” that idea into what they already know. Accommodation of knowledge is more substantial, requiring the learner to reshape those containers.
But it’s based on your own schema, scale, and timeline. Being exposed to academic standards only a few times in limited number or forms limits a student’s ability to effectively reform said data into useful schema.
