In order to develop appropriate attitudes and skills, and to effectively apply knowledge to the care and education of young children, the student works in a licensed and approved setting under the supervision of a qualified professional. Periodic conferences between the supervisor and the practicum instructor evaluate the student’s progress. At the close of the semester the student submits documentation relating the student’s practicum learning experiences. Work at the practicum site along with self-reflection and disclosure documented with journaling combine to create a structure that promotes and supports personal and professional growth.
