I393 – Designing Quality Child Care for Infants, Toddlers and Their Families
3 Credit Hours
For students specializing in infant/toddler child care
This course addresses the key principles and policies underlying the design of quality child care programs for children under three and their families. Building on a model of relationship-based care, this course provides an exploration of the components of quality care and helps participants reflect on program philosophy that will help guide day-to-day practice. Course participants will be required to consider both the theoretical and practical implications of quality standards for very young children and reflect on their own interpretations of how this may be best supported.
This course was previously numbered I361, changed in September 2013.
