Social Emotional Development:

The Foundation for All Curriculum

2.5 hours

Social emotional development is the foundation for all curriculum, especially for infants and toddlers. Throughout this course, we’ll be talking about the various aspects of social and emotional development. While all areas of development are intertwined, it’s important to realize that there is nothing that happens in the brain that doesn’t first pass through the emotional center of the brain. Therefore having a secure understanding of social-emotional development is essential when it comes to providing quality environments for young children. This class is geared towards infant and toddler teachers.
