ED1000 Early Childhood Survey Class
This class provides a broad base of information about teaching and caring for young children ages birth through five years old in group settings. The information presented corresponds to the CDA (Child Development Associate) Credential competencies and functional areas, including ways to set up a safe, healthy environment to invite learning, steps to advance children’s physical and intellectual competence, positive ways to support children’s social and emotional development, keys to establishing productive relationships with families, managing programs, and professional responsibilities. Proceeding to the CDA is not a requirement, but students may take this opportunity to acquire this credential. (Course is currently provided through the AIM program at OCU).
