L'enfant, un être d'éprouvés émotionnels : l’approche psychomotrice en crèche pour accompagner l’enfant dans ses vécus émotionnels

Abstract : Daycare has long been identified as only a child care facility. However, in my opinion, a daycare is first and foremost a place to live, a place to guide the children in their development, their discoveries, their experimentations, their learning and their interactions. As a future psychomotrician, I feel it paramount to not omit the following definition : beyond child care, the early childhood professionnals support the child in their new motor, cognitive, affective and social experiences. Like every human, the young child expresses emotions. They can range from sadness during separation from their parent, to joy during a stimulating activity, fear when a stranger comes in, anger when their peer takes their toy, disgust during an unappealing meal. During my first encounters in the different sections but mostly during the first psychomotor workshops, I noticed that a lot of children are overwhelmed by their emotions, whatever their nature. Thus, from my observations, I asked myself : what biological and non biological phenomenons account for the immaturity that children show in regard to dealing with emotions? How can psychomotricity workshops in daycares can guide the child through their emotional experiences. My dissertation highlights both the specificity of daycare as an early childcare establishment and the psychomotor development of the young child. It defines emotions and gives them a place in the different theoretical currents. It exposes the development as much as the regulating of one’s emotions as a young child. It details the different emotional manifestations that are specific to young children. finally, it addresses psychomotor approach in daycare establishments.
