Conclusion

Emotional Development Ellie is a happy child who laughs and smiles a lot. She likes to get her own way, and if she doesn't then she will shout, scream, cry and stamp. Overall though Ellie is generally a happy child who does not cry a lot, even if she hurts herself she just tends to laugh and carry on with what she was doing. From my introductory visit I now know that Ellie is a shy girl but she knows me quite well and is a very friendly and happy girl who shows a wide range of both positive and negative emotions. Ellie enjoys all types of play but seems to prefer imaginative games. Ellie loves to draw and do other creative activities, especially those that encourage and involve imaginative development and play. From what I have seen of Ellie, play is still a very important part of her day so I am choosing PLAY as my broad area of research. ...read more.
