Designing and Implementing Early Childhood Curriculum

Code:
EDUC 1383

Students analyze the influence of theoretical philosophies when designing curriculum models that are consistent with research and developmental principles in Early Childhood Education Administration. Administrative strategies for curriculum design and implementation are evaluated for consistency with Best Practices for children's optimal learning. The ELECT document provides a framework model for administrative analysis. Students analyze current early childhood curriculum models such as Montessori, High/Scope, Reggio Emilia; Bank Street, Creative Curriculum and the Full Day Early Learning Program to understand the role of the administrator in curriculum design. Through discussions, postings/presentations, case studies, readings, assignments and practical applications, students have the opportunity to practice and utilize curriculum design skills including analysis, research, evaluation, decision-making to affect change in the workplace.

This course is designed for professionals with an Early Childhood Education Diploma or recognized equivalent, who are now, or would like to be, administrators of child-care services. The course may also be of interest to child-care administrators who are: - currently learning "on the job" - early childhood educators seeking career advancement - employers encouraging staff development and training.
