In this course, students combine their knowledge of child development and their observation and documentation skills to consider the modes in which Kindergarten and school-age children learn. Topics include developing positive relationships with the child, other professionals and the community, encouraging children to accept challenges and take appropriate risks, and the role of the Early Childhood Educator in relationship to current legislation and pedagogies. The focus of this course is on the planning of interest-based experiences that facilitate and scaffold learning in all areas of development.
