ECE 204 Child Development and Cognition I (Prenatal – 5 Years)

3 Credits

Child Development and Cognition I is one of a series of two courses that is designed to investigate the theory and experience of children in the perceptual, motor, cognitive, social, psychological, and moral domains of development. This course specifically addresses these constructs from the prenatal period to five years of age. Additionally, Pennsylvania’s Early Childhood Learning Standards are studied as the guideposts for teacher candidates to provide responsive instruction, curriculum, collaboration, and assessment. A practicum is a required component of this course which enables students to learn observation, assessment, and recordkeeping skills.

NOTE: All students pursuing Early Elementary (PK–4) and Special Education (PK–8) Certification are required to successfully complete ECE 101, Teaching as a Profession: PK–4, before taking any other required course in the major. Students pursuing Secondary Teacher Certification in either Biology/General Science, English, or Social Studies are required to successfully complete EDU 101, Teaching as a Profession, before taking any other required course in the major.
