Teachers - like children and everyone else - feel the need to grow in their competences; they want to transform experiences into thoughts, thoughts into reflections, and reflections into new thoughts and new actions. They also feel a need to make predictions, to try things out, and to interpret them...Teachers must learn to interpret ongoing processes rather than wait to evaluate results.

So much of your own culture and personal philosophy of early childhood education and children goes into your everyday practices. This is also a very important reason to always be reflecting upon practices.
This poster is designed to make life a bit easier for early education teachers when trying to link learning stories and observations to theorists. It is a very easy to read document that looks great up on a wall, in children's portfolios and anywhere that educators need a quick snapshot of different theorists in childhood education.
