ECE: Infant/Toddler Growth and Development
State licensing requires staff who work in infant and toddler programs to complete a three-unit semester course in Infant/Toddler Care and Development. This course satisfies the infant/toddler development portion of the requirement. The UCSC Extension course "Principles of Infant/Toddler Caregiving" fulfills the remainder of the state licensing requirement.
This course is designed for those who work or plan to work in child-care programs for children up to three years of age. The focus is on understanding growth and development and recognizing the range of individual differences within developmental norms. Participants engage in a variety of activities to promote theory learning and observation skills. Topics include gross and fine motor skills, perception, emotions and feelings, social skills, cognition and language.
