EDUC 6683 - Developmentally Appropriate Practices for Infants and Toddlers


(3 sem. cr.) What constitutes high-quality care and education for infants and toddlers? Through this course, education professionals have the opportunity to answer this question as they examine developmentally appropriate practices that promote children’s total well-being and that guide development in each of the domains—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive/language. They also gain a practical overview of infant and toddler growth and development, and they explore a variety of related issues, such as health and safety, early mental health, brain development, creative development, respectful and responsive adult-child relationships, and family involvement. Through field experience and practical applications, education professionals learn to design and evaluate environments that enrich the development and learning of infants and toddlers.
