Infant/Toddler Development & Care
This combination of classroom and hands-on experience provides participants a competency based practical education in the development and growth of children Zero (0) through age three (3) years old. Special emphasis is placed on early language development and how caregivers facilitate this development. A practical application of theories helps to train participants in developmental care and curriculum planning for the infant child care program.
Participants must have a current TB test and fingerprints to participate in the practicum session. The externship allows participants to work directly in the childcare center and gain experience. The hands on experience of the externship gives participants the opportunity to practice by direct application of classroom learning through the development and refining of personal professional techniques for a safe and appropriate application of acquired knowledge of early childhood education and care.
