What is a checklist observation in childcare?

Checklists are a logically sequenced way to observe children that evaluates their progress from one point to another. This observation technique can provide insight into where a child is having difficulties or excelling.

What are the types of observation in childcare?

Anecdotal records - This method involves factual accounts of events that have taken place. Running records - This method involves noting down what you see and what the child says as it is happening. Time samples - This involves recording observations about the child’s behaviour and what the child is doing at specific times. Photographs - Images of the child, complete with annotations and descriptions about what was taking place when the image was taken, provide vital insight to who the child is as an individual.

What should you avoid during observations?

Do not interfere or pressure the children to perform. Do not assume or state your opinion while recording evidence. Do not record anything you do not see. Do not label behaviors, actions or feelings. Avoid using subjective, bias or judgmental terms. Avoid using exaggerations and conditional words.
