Childhood Development


In this unit, we have been continuing our exploration of the field of early childhood development. As you know, this field consists of countless services, which include programs for infants and toddlers, preschool programs, family childcare, childcare centers, kindergarten, and schooling for primary age children. Each has the potential to foster healthy development and learning as well as positively impact children’s lives; and many of these require professionals to have similar characteristics as they partake in the role of working with children and their families. It?s also interesting to consider some of the historical events/changes that have occurred within this field.
