Introduction to Child Study.

Extracts from this document...


Introduction to Child Study The child I will be studying is Mica. She was born on the 26th December 1999. She is now 3 years and 7 months old. Mica is of mixed race with lovely brown curly hair and beautiful brown eyes. She is a very lively and outgoing child. Mica can also be very shy with strangers dependent on their approach to her. Mica is rather tall for her at 108 1/2 cm or 42 1/2 inches tall and wears clothes aged 4-5. She gets the height from her father's side of the family. She also has a size 9 feet, which is large for her age. Mica is very happy, chatty child who can mix with most children, and attends the local nursery five days a week all day whilst her parents work. ...read more.

Most of her toys are kept in her bedroom; she also has a television and video player in her room with a wide range of videos to watch. Mica has no siblings so that is why it is good that her mother put her into nursery from a young age to get used to the prospect of sharing with others of the same age. When she was one, she went along to a playgroup with her mother for a few hours a day at the venue of the nursery.

For Christmas, she is getting a two-wheeled scooter to learn to ride. Her emotional development is clear as she often shows signs of fear and excitement in different situations. She does not like to be left alone in a room especially with the door closed. Her intellectual development is good, she knows most differences and remembers names, places, and people. Mica also remembers where she saw someone or where someone works or lives. Her social development is gradually building because of the fact she is attending a nursery throughout the day with other children around her own age. Mica can also throw terrible mood swings and be very disobedient. She often gives her mother cheek when she is shouting at her and sometimes Mica hits her mother when she is being told off.
