Course Description:
      This course is designed for students who enjoy small children. Students will study how
      children grow and how to care for children. The physical, emotional, social, and
      intellectual growth of the child is covered in depth from before birth to age six. Other
      concepts include the selection of foods, clothing, and activities for each age group. This
      is an activity class; students will participate in a nursery school where they will plan and
      carry out activities for pre-school children during the second half of the course. Students
      planning careers in elementary or pre-school education, nursing, child care or as
      parents would benefit from this course.
