EDSD 7080 - Child Development in the Critical Early Years♦


(5 cr.) Effective early childhood professionals know that respectful relationships with families provide the foundation for supporting young children’s healthy development. Candidates examine key developmental stages, from prenatal experiences to the early school years. Education professionals explore child development theory, current research in neuroscience, and social-emotional development across the early childhood years, with a special emphasis on the significant role families play in fostering healthy development. Current thinking from the fields of psychology, science, and education are integrated with global perspectives on child development. Educators apply their knowledge to promote positive developmental outcomes for young children and their families.
