Presenter: Jessica Belcher, Early Childhood Program Consultant
Early childhood education provides the base layer of building blocks for a child’s educational experience. It is the responsibility of early childhood professionals to provide a safe, nurturing, and intentional learning environment where children are treated as individuals, yet are still part of the classroom environment. Developmentally appropriate practices (DAP) are based off of well-known developmental theories along with experience and knowledge of people who have spent their lives learning and growing in the field of early childhood education. This training will provide an overview of four developmental learning theories, a description and dissection of developmentally appropriate practice from NAEYC, and examples of DAP in infant/toddler and preschool settings.
This training is aligned with NC FELD topic areas: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, & 9
