Development and Education of Young Children

Course Description: 

In this course, we will compare French and U.S. policies related to the education of young (preschool age) children and the political, economic and cultural issues underlying these policies, such as beliefs about the role and interests of the state in children's development and education any more specifically about the goals of early childhood education. We will also review research evidence on the qualities of preschool environments that promote self-regulation and social and cognitive development in children.
