EDUC 4205 - Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Infant Settings♦


(5 cr.) Through this course, education professionals engage in an in-depth exploration of infant growth and development. They examine the role of the caregiver; components of high-quality caregiver-child relationships; and strategies for ensuring developmentally appropriate, individually appropriate, and culturally appropriate practice. They also explore methods to understand and work with families, observation skills, attachment, separation, continuity of care, brain development, and the creation of nurturing environments for very young children and their families. Demonstrating their understanding of course content, education professionals apply concepts through practical assignments, such as the development of a newsletter that provides information on the influence of infant settings on supporting young children and their families.
