Child Growth and Development introduces students to the notion of the child (newborn to age 8) as a learner and family member with needs to explore, communicate, and develop physical, cognitive, and social competence. The course covers current stages of a child's development, including the range of normal milestones at the various developmental levels. Based on the NH Early Learning Standards, the course places special emphasis on appropriate expectations within learning environments at the various stages of development. Students in the course explore and examine observation skills through case-study analysis.
