Welcome to Child Development!

You will be introduced to an in-depth study of children from pre-birth through age five. Children’s cognitive, physical, social and emotional development will be studied in detail, with emphasis on the toddler and the preschooler. A preschool component, KinderNorth, which is run in the high school classroom, will allow students the opportunity to plan and carry out activities for children in a supervised setting. Students will interact and observe children in the preschool for a minimum of 18 hours during the semester. Interaction with children is a strong focus of this course!
