School Age Environment (ODE)
This course is designed to introduce students to school-age children and their care as part of a child-care and school setting. In addition, students gain information and techniques to help them work effectively with diverse families and to design and develop age-appropriate activities and learning experiences. Since most ECE students will likely provide care for school-age children through before-and after-school programs, Full Day Early Learning programs in JK/SK Classrooms as well as summer and weekend programs, the focus of this course will be on school-age children's social, emotional, physical, moral, cognitive and self-development. In the end, the intent of this course is to enable students to use their knowledge of school-age children to develop skills to plan, carry out, and evaluate a well-rounded school-age program.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.OntarioLearn information
