In this course, students combine their knowledge of child development and their observation and documentation skills to consider the modes through which infant, toddler and preschool children learn. Topics include care-giving practices, responsive environments, developing positive relationships with children and families, 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/activities that facilitate and scaffold learning in all areas of development.
