Guidance of The Young Child

Code:
CHLD 1382

Early childhood professionals play an important role in creating inclusive and responsive learning environments to benefit all children and families. Central to this role is recognizing the value of all relationships that nurture children's development, their sense of self and promotes pro-social behaviours. The philosophical tenets of responsive and authentic relationships will be explored within various theoretical frameworks. The learning environment is celebrated as a “teacher” because of its significant influence on children’s development, sense of belonging and well-being. The organization of space optimizes the potential for indirect guidance, inquiry and engagement. The physical space is constructed to facilitate children’s development of self- regulation and independence. Students will gain insight into the characteristics of quality environments for young children.
