Course Description

 


Children are born scientists. They are eager to investigate and discover how the world works, which means that the early years are an ideal time to support their curiosity. Infants and toddlers can begin to develop the inquiry skills that will aid them in exploring science throughout their lives with caregiver support. This training examines how infants and toddlers use their investigative skills to explore their world. Participants will understand the benefits of promoting early science learning in the classrooms through age-appropriate science materials, activities, daily routines, and everyday experiences. Come discover how science supports young children in all domains of development, especially approaches to play and learning and cognitive development.


Each participant will receive 2.0 CHC for attending and completing all required coursework.
