EDUC 1005 - Child Health, Safety, and Nutrition♦


(5 cr.)
Growth and development in young children are influenced by many factors, including nutrition, safety, and health. Education professionals in this course learn about these factors and examine the professional’s role in supporting children’s healthy development within the context of early childhood care and education as well as in family and community settings. They also assess and discuss the prevention of health problems common to young children, methods of promoting wellness and fitness, child safety, emergency preparedness and procedures, and child mental health.
