Preschool and School Age Development
|Lecture hours per week|
|Lab hours per week|
The development of pre-school and school-age children is exciting to observe and challenging to interpret. This course will build upon the basic knowledge that has been acquired in the CY117 Observing Child Development and Infant/Toddler Development courses. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the sequences and patterns of development and explore developmental theories of pre-school and school-age development. The knowledge students acquire will help them to respond to the individual needs of pre-school and school-age children within a group setting. Developmental stages and theories will be learned through observation, readings, videos, mini-lectures and in-class discussions. Active involvement in these experiences of learning will help the student to be successful.
