Early Childhood Occupations II provides students with a more in-depth study of child development. Students learn how to use formal and informal assessments to determine skills, interests, temperament, and learning styles of individual children. Students also gain an understanding of NAEYC developmentally appropriate practice, and explore how young children gain social competence, mathematical and scientific knowledge, among other approaches to learning. Business management practices, curriculum design, and career opportunities are explored in this half of the program.
Students will operate our 123 playgroup as well as our Parent/Infant program. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a field experience internship. Students will have the opportunity to gain CECA certification and to earn an additional 9 college credits.
