I am studying level 3 early years, I am on my last unit. I'm completing my professional development unit and need to discuss theoretical perspectives In relation to this. Any thoughts? I personally think that Donald Schon best suits myself, I personally like to reflect-in-action

I think that reflective accounts are extremely important in child care. I have studied Schon myself and agree this is a good approach.

I like to improvise whist I am in action, this way I feel the children get more from the activity. I do also think that Kolb’s theory is good, thinking after and finding ways to make the activity more successful next time.

I do find that improvising on the spot can be difficult with small children, but sometimes it depends on the children and the age. I haven't studied Kolb'd theory before but that also sounds like a good theory. I find that most of the girls in my setting think after and then plan ahead for the following day/week. Where do you work?
