The Child Development course is a study of the developmental stages of children from conception through adolescence. We study the development of children from the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language areas of development.  Emphasis is placed on the theoretical principles of developmentally appropriate practices applied to programs, classroom environments, emphasizing the key role of relationships, constructive adult-child interactions, and teaching strategies. 

Students enrolled in this course gain the background knowledge needed for careers working with children, including child development and teaching, by working directly with preschoolers.  We run a fully functioning Preschool program incorporating the knowledge we learn.
Topics include: child growth and development; parenting: guidance and discipline; abuse and neglect; health and safety; learning, play and recreation; cultural diversity; and children with special needs.
 
Child Growth and Development is a Career Technical Education course (CTE) and satisfies the CTE requirement.
