Child Development is a year-long course that includes classroom instruction as well as the completion of college-level projects. Students may receive 3 hours of college credit for this class if they maintain an average grade of 80% or higher on departmental tests and observations that meet college requirements. This college credit is recognized by community and four year colleges, but the final decision is up to each receiving institution. This credit is available through an articulation with Austin Community College. For more information, please contact Mrs. Barnes.
This laboratory course focuses on the knowledge and skills related to the development, care, guidance and protection of children. Instruction addresses principles and procedures for promoting the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of young children, including those with special needs.
If you plan to work with children of all ages in your future, this is the fun, creative, and active class for you!
