This practicum provides students with an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge of working collaboratively in appropriate childcare settings under the supervision of the practicum supervisor and a designated mentor in the childcare setting. In addition to engaging with children and participating in the routine each day, students are expected to expand their understanding of various roles in a childcare program, such as lead educator, associate director, or program director, as well as working as a member of a team. In the lecture portion, students will discuss working with diverse families and communities, the role of the educator in observation, documentation, the child’s voice and play, and working as a team member.
