Course Description:

Early Childhood, Education, and Services II, a specialized course for students with career interests in early childhood education and services, builds upon concepts introduced in Early Childhood, Education, and Services I (19152/8285). Students plan, organize, and conduct learning experiences that provide safe and healthy learning environments; promote physical, cognitive, language, social, and emotional development; utilize curricula responsive to children’s needs; and promote family engagement. Students expand their knowledge of legal, ethical, and education and training requirements for early childhood professionals. Reviewing knowledge, skills, and aptitudes required for careers in early childhood careers and creating a professional portfolio assist students with demonstrating college and career readiness. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
