Description: (16 hrs/week or 2 days) Total: 256 hrs. This course is designed to offer the student the chance to develop skills in working with infants and toddlers in group care settings. This course will allow the student to connect experiences in the field placement with what is being learned in other courses. The placement is designed to allow each student to gain experience working with infants and toddlers, to observe the stags of devleopment, to notice what infants and toddlers do and to learn how to respond to them. At the agency where the student is placed, two days a week, a qualified Early Childhood Educator will be responsible for role modelling, supervising appropriate interactions with the children, co-workers and parents and provide feedback. A Led young College Faculty Field Supervisor will also support the student's learning by observing at the agency, offering feedback and assigning a grade for the placement.
