Class Information

Child Development 1
Child Development 1 is a course designed to increase students’ child care ability levels, prepare them for careers in the early education industry, and lead them toward successful parenting practices in the future.  Topics include prenatal development and care, physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of infants through toddler-age children, age appropriate activity/lesson planning and positive guidance methods. Students will also have the opportunity to experience parenthood through a structured simulation with the Realcare  computerized infant.  Since most effective parenting skills often mirror those of child care professionals, this course will approach techniques from an early childhood education perspective.
