ECE307 Early Childhood Research

The purpose of this course is to provide students with current information for developing an integrated approach to curriculum in the early years of education. This course intends to bridge the worlds of child-care and early education, as well as those of preprimary and primary programs. In addition, it addresses early childhood education professionals working in settings with young children from birth to age 8. The ideas in this course have been extensively field tested and found to be effective. All are designed to give students a cohesive view of the what, why, and how of developmentally appropriate practices. This course is valuable to a broad range of early childhood professionals.
