Young children want to be well-behaved, they want to learn, and they want to please their caregivers. However, they need guidance for developmentally appropriate expectations. Teachers need to understand child development and developmentally appropriate practice in order to support young children in this process.
This course will teach you how to create, explain, and implement expectations for young children. In the end, the goal is for students to understand that the expectations make their classroom a better place. We will also identify ways to teach young children about creating rules and also share strategies for helping them manage their feelings about rules.
This course will be divided into two parts:
- Part 1 - Creating Appropriate Classroom Expectations
- Part 2 - Helping Young Children Understand and Follow Expectations
Not all courses are approved for early care and education in every state. Please check State and CEU Approvals page for details.
