Child, Family & Community
Participants are trained to instruct children (normally up to 5 years of age) in settings such as preschools, day care centers, or other child development facilities through activities designed to promote the needed social, physical, and intellectual growth in order to be better prepared to enter elementary school.
Participants study the dynamics between young children and the forces exerted on them by cultural and societal influences of family, school and community. Participants explore these influences through the exercise of self examination and classroom discussion of personal growth experiences of these same influences. Community resources and social services for healthcare welfare and counseling of families and children are highlighted.
