Do you wonder sometimes why children do what they do? Did you know that there have been hundreds of years of research about young children and how they learn and grow? Do you want to know more about how that impacts your work? Come and learn the basic characteristics of early childhood and child development, including brain development and temperament. Explore the history and the theorists that have had a great impact on the early childhood field. You will leave with a list of developmental domains and milestones and an understanding of how culture influences learning.
