Understanding a child's development can inform teaching and caring for that child because one can use the information gathered during observations on individual development to prepare the appropriate curriculum for that child as the teaching methods will be more specific to the child's development which also shows care for the child.

Understanding a child’s development, helps guide the curriculum and activities for the class or individual. We can find opportunities to scaffold a child’s development by assessing their current skills and taking the appropriate steps to advance them.

Well first, you have to observe the child to understand their development. From here, you develop mutual respect and appreciation for their unique developmental timetables. 
Understanding their development informs teaching and caring for that child because your instructional goals are based on where each child's individual developmental stage is. You are able to scaffold your curriculum to match each child's unique developmental stage. You are also able to modify your goals to help support each child better. 
Understanding individual developments helps to create an effective and supportive program for not just the child, but their families too.

1.2 How can understanding a child's development inform teaching and caring for that child?
Your teaching should reflect the children in your care and their developmental levels.  By observing you are able to better adapt your lesson plans to help the child reach the next developmental stage.  In addition, if you have a clear understanding of the child's development then you will be able to set realistic guidelines and expectations which will lead to more successes for you and the child.

Observing where your students are at is so crucial because you can use the knowledge from what you observe to create curriculum that is appropriate for your students and where they are developmentally.

In order to teach children efficiently it is important to be aware that every child learns in a different way and can thrive in a learning environment created for them individually. Observing each child and their individual growth can help you teach and care for them to the best of your ability. This is the "for every kid" teaching approach where learning and nurturing is aimed towards each individual child instead of towards a statistic or large group approach.

In order to understand the development of the child, it is necessary to be guided by the notes obtained during the observation that we did of the child's activities in order to help them in specific abilities, interest, and skills. We need to make a plan and work in the progress of the child.

Understanding a child’s development informs our teaching and caring for a child by helping us understand the child’s current development better through observation, reflection offer us a chance to assess and plan for where a child may need additional care, support, and scaffolding to encourage learning. First off, understanding builds connection and trust between a child and a teacher. This type of informed teaching helps us a teacher meet the child’s needs at their unique point along their journey of development.

Its key to observe a child's development. Observing development allows a teacher to assess each child's individual needs, the curriculum/program and how to evolve the program or teaching from where they are at developmentally.

Once you understand a child's development you can better understand what the next step in their development is, and this allows us to to teach/care for that child by providing the proper support (scaffolding) necessary for the child to achieve the next step.

Understanding an individual child's growth and development rate is crucial in altering your lessons to fit each child. One child may surpass another in one area but behind in another. Knowing where each child is developmentally and how they learn will help the caregiver to scaffold the child's learning.
