This course explores development from age 2.5 years through 5 to understand the systematic changes in social, emotional, physical and cognitive functioning of the child. Theories of development are examined which highlight progressive changes and integration of functioning. This is a key theory course that is required before students can progress to courses in curriculum design. The major project in the course utilizes, in part, the observation techniques learned in EARL1 and CHIL1000.
