ECE 225 - Health, Safety and Nutrition for the Young Child


This course is intended for pre-service students, new and experienced early education teachers, parents, and colleagues in any role that touches children’s lives. Three major topical areas are addressed: childrens health, safety, and nutrition (basic and applied). The course focuses on the relationships that exist between health status, safety, nutrition, and social and environmental factors. Students will explore influences of poverty, inequality of medical care, and access to good nutrition. Participants will explore methods for managing children’s health, safety and nutrition and approaches through which young children can become informed about their own health and begin to take responsibility for their well-being. Participants also will be encouraged to work to improve social conditions affecting children’s health and welfare.
