Early Childhood Education 1
Course # Y663
Semester: Year long, double block
Suggested preceding course: Understanding Young Children
This is the first level of the Early Childhood Education Program. It is the basis for working with children in an Early Childhood profession. This course lays the foundation of development for infants, toddlers and preschool age children. Learning about development through hands-on experiences is interesting and fun. Students who participate in The Little Lion’s playroom learn to enhance the play experiences of young children. Games, outdoor play and field trips are explored as well as dramatic play, foods, nutrition and cooking activities. Many early childhood programs in the area will be visited for observation.
