Child Development/1: Foundations

This competency-based course is the first in a sequence of three designed for early childhood education. It provides students with project-based experiences in child development programs. Instruction includes an orientation, workplace safety policies and procedures, techniques on communications and critical thinking, and employability skills. Emphasis is placed on the theories of human development and growth. Field observations and experiences with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are provided as application components of studying child development program goals, guidance techniques, health and nutrition practices, indoor and outdoor environments, and special education requirements. The competencies in this course are aligned with the California High School Academic Content Standards and the California Career Technical Education Model Curriculum Standards.


Enrollment requires employment-level competency in reading, written and oral communications, math, and computer operation.
