This course provides an in-depth learning experience in best practices that applies to the care and education of children from birth to 3 years of age. Principles of development and infant/toddler milestones form the basis for making decisions about effective caregiving practices. Emphasis will also be placed on the child within the context of the family as a major factor to consider when determining high-quality infant/toddler care outside the home. This course combines in-class learning with a 40-hour practicum experience where students will have the opportunity to interact with children and caregivers and apply theory and in-class learning. Students will also study the sociological and political contexts that affect programs for infants and toddlers. 3 credits PREREQUISITES: EC 200, EC 201.
