EDUC 4102 - Play and Learning for the Preschool Child♦


(5 cr.) In this course, education professionals address an essential question in early childhood education: Why is play integral to children’s development and learning? They learn the theory, methods, and materials needed to support and enhance children’s play and learning in preschool settings, and they gain an understanding of the vital role of play in fostering growth in each of the developmental domains. They also explore how to arrange developmentally appropriate environments; provide opportunities for high-quality, productive play, and learning experiences; and assess development and learning through observation of play-based activities and learning experiences.
