EDPR 220 - Engaging Interactions and Environments in Early Childhood


Fulfills a requirement in the A.S. in Early Childhood Education.
Delivery: Lecture
Early childhood is a time of rapid growth and development; children’s early experiences have a profound effect on their later outcomes.  Early childhood education and care has the potential to foster children’s skills and learning, and high quality programs can influence children’s long-term success. The benefit of high quality early educational experiences is even greater for children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The key components of a high quality early learning experience include environments that are: (1) well organized and rich with materials that support children’s learning, and (2) provide regular opportunities for children to engage in warm, responsive, and instructionally supportive interactions with caregivers. This course is designed to increase students’ knowledge about the importance of high quality early childhood education, and the specific types of environments and interactions that support the development of children’s social-emotional, cognitive, and early academic skills.
