Students work with preschool- and school-age children on a weekly basis and become familiar with the daily routine of programs serving these ages. Basic skills include developmentally appropriate interactions, supporting caregiver plans, and fostering development. Students spend 45 hours with the preschool-age children and 45 hours with school-age children and plan a few experiences appropriate for this age group. Students are required to attend bi-monthly, one-hour, seminar sessions with assigned instructor. NOTE: The co-requisite ECED 1230 can be taken concurrently or previously completed. Students enrolling in the ECED practica should follow the procedures located on the Early Childhood Practicum website at www.mccneb.edu/ecp.
