This course will be a study of important influences on infant and toddler development supported by research on brain development during the first three years of life. Emphasis will be put on the role and responsibilities of families, child care teachers, and specialists in creating high quality supportive environments. Sensitivity to attachment and the importance of observation and communication skills to nurture positive family, caregiver, and child relationships through the roles of primary caregiving, transitions, and continuity of care will be highlighted as students learn to design responsive programs for infants and toddlers and their families. Field work in an infant or toddler classroom is required as part of this class. A $25 Child and Family Development Center (CFDC) Lab fee will be assessed for all students taking ECE 215C.(Prerequisite: ECE 101C or permission of the Department Chair of Child and Family Studies)
