Focusing on major theories of development and learning, this course presents the study of the preschool and school age child through a lens of holistic and interdependent development. The biologically determined characteristics and the influences of family, culture and society are explored and the ways in which they interact are examined. Students will continue to refine their observation skills to document their knowledge and understanding of development and strengthen their interpretations of children’s behaviours, strengths and abilities for the purpose of intentional and inclusive curriculum planning.
