You want every child in your care to grow up as happy and healthy as possible. But with so many factors to consider - from academic success to gross motor skills - how do you know where to begin?
This course will help you understand two different models of healthy development: Erikson's Stages of Emotional Development and Maslow's Theory of Human Needs.
