EDM 506 - Early Childhood Development

(Cr: 3)
This course will provide a concentrated overview of child development from conception through the early years (to approximately seven years of age).  Specific emphasis will be place on Dr. Maria Montessori’s theories of child development, along with a review of the contributions of various other developmental theorists. Practical emphasis will be placed on how these theoretical orientations relate to the Early Childhood education center.  We will also explore the various developmental stages of art in the preschool aged child, and how outward expressions reflect inner processes.
