ECE 360 - Infants, Toddlers, and Families Development


4 credits
The first three years of life are a time of amazing growth and development. Based on research in neuroscience, this course explores the importance of early relationships and how they promote healthy brain development. Students gain in-depth appreciation and understanding this unique stage of life and a vision for high quality care and early education. Emphasis is placed on child observations, analysis and reflection as important components in the application of teaching practices in developmentally appropriate early childhood programs. Current understandings of infant/toddler mental health are used to support students understanding of infant-parent/caregiver attachment and the effects of trauma and stress in infancy. Prerequisite(s): Junior status or above.
