Save the Children Kosova/o organizes training module on 'Observation and its use in the assessment of children 0-3'

Observation plays a pivotal role in the field of early childhood education as it facilitates a deep understanding of a child's development, skills, interests, strengths, and play. By closely observing children in childcare settings, educators gain valuable insights into their behavior, learning styles, and overall progress, allowing them to tailor their teaching practices accordingly. Recognizing the significance of observation in fostering optimal growth and learning, Save the Children Kosova/o took the initiative to organize a specialized training session for educators working with children aged 0-3 in partner public preschool institutions across Prishtina, Prizren, Gjakova, and Klina. The training focused on the theme of "Observation and its Use in the Assessment of Children 0-3," with the primary objective of supporting children as they explore, play, and learn.

The training was designed to equip educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct effective observations and utilize the gathered information for comprehensive child assessment. By honing their observation techniques, educators become adept at capturing the intricacies of children's play, behavior, and learning styles. This newfound expertise enables them to make informed decisions, adapt teaching strategies, and provide targeted interventions to meet the unique needs of every child in their care.

Furthermore, the training emphasized the importance of utilizing observation as a means of promoting holistic development. By closely observing children's play, educators can gain insights into their cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth. This multifaceted understanding enables them to design activities and experiences that cater to the diverse dimensions of development, fostering well-rounded growth in children aged 0-3.
