This course reviews children’s development (from the prenatal period to age 5) in the context of family, culture, and education, and focuses on applying this knowledge to teaching young children. Emphasis is on using knowledge of all developmental areas to observe over time a child in an early education setting. This information will be analyzed and interpreted in terms of developmental processes, the teacher’s role and interaction strategies, and provision of developmentally appropriate learning experiences. Also explored will be past personal experiences with young children, the nature of teaching young children, and related career options involving young children. A case study of a young child is required.
