Connections Paper


For US and UK students, need help on this assignment upload it through our website or send through email at

You must also submit sign in sheets for each location on Blackboard.


The connection paper should include the following:


  • Briefly describe the two locations where you completed your observations. Include in your description:
    • the address: ISU Child Care Center (Maehling Terrace, University Apartments at 200 Farrington Street-Unit 2)
    •, you can use this to provide the address and the phone number.
    • phone number of the site
    • how many hours you completed at each location (12 hours).
    • name of your contact there (kamilahAlhababi).
    • You will need to attach proof of your hours, and a signature from the person who was your contact. I will be following up with each center to verify. If you do not turn in these documents, you will receive a zero for the paper. If the contact information you provide for the two facilities is not valid, you will receive a zero for the paper. (don’t worry about this I will provide by myself).
    • Remember that forging signatures to verify observation hours is plagiarism.


Compare the development of the children yoau observed at each site using the cognitive, physical, and socioemotional milestones; what were the differences and similarities between the children at each site? Explain how they do/do not align with two theories (Choose from this list:  Piaget, Erikson, Vygotsky, Freud, Bandura or Brofenbrenner).Be sure to include parental socioeconomic status and quality of the child care settings in your explanations.
