Massachusetts Early Childhood Guidelines and Core Competencies
This course combines the three, one-credit courses Core competencies, Infant Toddler Guidelines, and Preschool Guidelines. It is designed to provide early childhood education professionals with the knowledge and skills 1) to assess their own level, in terms of the eight core competencies, across the infant-toddler, preschool and out-of-school age range; 2) to explore the development of infants and toddlers while documenting experiences that support this development: and 3) to deepen the knowledge and skills to teach each content area according to the preschool learning guidelines, or state standards. Students cannot receive credit for this course if they have already received credit for ECHD 303 or 320 or 325.
