This course explores the fundamental concepts of early childhood development (e.g., birth through age 5) as applied to family contexts. The course considers theoretical and empirical literature in early childhood development and examines the implications for practice with families and community-based organizations.

Many of our students have a professional interest in early childhood development and either work for or with community-based organizations that serve young children/families with young children. It has been taught twice as a Special Topics course.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of EducationPaola Sztajn Her response was:
Our Elementary Education program currently does not work with early childhood (0-5)--our focus at this point starts in Kindergarten. I will say that we would like to expand to consider pre-school and early childhood one day, but we are not there yet! Therefore, the proposed course does not overlap with the courses we currently teach.
