ECHS 1150 - Infant-Toddler Development & Curriculum

Credit Hours: 4.00
Prerequisites: ENGL 1180  or ENGL 1210 ; and ECHS 1100  all with grade C or better

(formerly ECHS 1540)

This course focuses on growth and development of infants and toddlers as it relates to planning authentic learning opportunities and developmentally appropriate environments. Theories of development (social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and language) provide the foundation of knowledge necessary to support young children through observation, assessment and curriculum planning. Because children are viewed in the context of family, culture, and community, and cognition is directly influenced by social connections, students will learn appropriate caregiving strategies and how to support and empower families through respectful and reciprocal relationships. Students will complete 30 hours of observation with infants and toddlers.
