Students will also have the opportunity to design a bulletin board that addresses specific learning objectives while meeting requirements for diversity and cultural awareness. Lab opportunities will exist for students to further develop their understanding of child development and their ability to plan, implement and evaluate developmentally appropriate activities for children. This course is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in education or child care. Three U.C.C. credits may be earned through this course.
