EE2470 - Infant Development & Care

This is an introductory course in infant care. It focuses on the unique needs of infants and how these needs can be met through a developmentally appropriate approach to programming and responsive care during the first two years of life. This approach takes into consideration the developmental needs and individual and cultural differences among infants, as well as the critical role of the infant-educator relationship. Particular attention is paid to the various roles of the educator in the design, planning, implementation, and evaluation of a developmentally appropriate physical, social-emotional, and cognitive environment for infants. The importance of establishing positive relationships and open communication patterns with parents will be highlighted in the course.
