Child Development I & II

Child Development I:

This course allows students to gain knowledge of children through study and observation of developmental stages and provide insight and opportunity for students interested in child related careers or their own future parenting roles. Child Development is a study of the child from conception to school age, blended with guidance principles necessary for working with children and successful parenting. Practical observation is used as an integral part of developing a better understanding of children; the role of parenthood and the part childhood has played in our own lives. Students will develop lesson plans and then operate and teach a three-week playschool for three to four year-olds.

Child Development II:

Students continue their study and observations of children with particular emphasis on health and safety, parenting skills, special needs children and the vast area of careers open to those who wish to work with or for children. Students learn to develop lesson plans and then operate and teach a three-week playschool for three to four year-olds. After successful completion of Child Development II, students will have a grasp of what occurs in the professional Child Care setting. A student can also enroll in an Independent Study course, which will provide additional experience for those interested in a career in teaching.
