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.  Various child development theories are studied, along with the relationship between development and family and environment, and the interrelatedness of the developmental domains.  Pennsylvania’s Core Knowledge Competencies and 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 and practice observation, assessment, and recordkeeping skills.

Prerequisite(s): ECE 101   / EDU 101  

Note: There is a required field component for this course.  All students are required to have valid clearances to participate in field experience.
