Students are introduced to the field of school-age child care. Emphasis is placed on growth and development of children from five to 12 years of age. Development and implementation of age-appropriate activities is considered as well as classroom management, environmental planning challenges, utilization of community resources, and communication techniques. This course combined with EDU 1013 meets the Maryland requirements for school-aged teachers in child care facilities. Basic language skills are presumed, used and evaluated. Students are responsible for having a current Federal and State criminal background check and a signed and notarized permission to examine records of abuse and neglect of children and adults as required by COMAR 13A.16 for this course on file with CSM and MSDE OCC. The additional cost for this process is the responsibility of the student.
