EE1360 - Observation

The early childhood education student must be committed to the goal of supporting and enhancing children's development. Becoming a skilled observer is a reliable way to collect valid information about each child's skills, abilities, and their interests and needs. Students will develop knowledge and skills to purposefully observe, record, and interpret child behaviour. Through practical application of a variety of methods to gather observational data, the student's knowledge of children's development, interests, and needs will be enhanced. Students will be able to select appropriate observation methods, interpret and analyze their findings, and apply this knowledge to planning a developmentally appropriate program.
