There are many different ways to observe children in a childcare setting. The most widely used is the anecdotal record. An anecdotal record is a brief narrative account usually written after the event, describing an incident of a child's behavior that is important to the observer.
Other forms of observation that are common but used less include:
Checklist — a provider can use a checklist to keep track of when a child reaches certain developmental milestones.
Running Record — a narrative account written by the observer detailing everything that occurs within a certain period of time.
Tally Event — a list that helps you know how often something is happening during the day or with a particular child.
Photos and videotaping — using media to capture children's skills and strengths.
