The cost of this course is $5.00.  The students will be completing the required Department of Children and Familes testing in the area of Preschool age growth and development.  There may be additional costs if the students did not pass the testing taken in Early Childhood 1.


Early Childhood Education 3 and 4

Early Childhood Education 3 and 4 includes competencies in developing lesson plans, child development theories, factors that affect the development of a child, and developmentally appropriate practices and activities for infant/toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children.  Also covered are components on working with students with special needs, classroom management techniques and creating optimum environments for all children.
