ELCC 220 - Philosophy of ELCC
This course focuses on both the historical and current philosophical, social, and psychological influences that shape early childhood theory and practice. Contemporary models of early learning and child care programs, including Montessori and home-based programs, are examined from this perspective. Particular focus is given to Yukon and First Nations context.
Throughout the course, students spend time developing a working set of goals and formulating a personal philosophy for working with young children. Professional and educational resources are presented to encourage further study and learning.
