EDUC 4206 - Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Toddler Settings♦


(5 cr.) Education professionals in this course engage in an in-depth exploration of toddler growth and development. They explore the role of the toddler caregiver/teacher; the components of high-quality adult-child relationships; and strategies for ensuring developmentally appropriate, individually appropriate, and culturally appropriate practice. Education professionals engage in readings and course assignments focused on observation skills, attachment, separation, working with families, and creating inspiring and supportive environments for young children and their families. They also share perspectives and make connections through discussions on related topics, such as cultural values and beliefs, separations and reunions, play and the environment, and identity formation and cultural responsiveness, among others.
