Course Description

Family and Community Relationships will provide opportunities for students to develop a sense of professionalism in school and community settings, while examining the shifting demographic context of schools and communities in the United States. The course will focus on the interaction of families, schools and communities, and how that interaction can influence a child's success in school. Further, taking into account economic and cultural diversity as well as exceptionality, this course presents a collaborative approach for working with all students' families to promote learning and resolve issues throughout the early childhood and elementary years. The course will include observations and participation in the field in a variety of settings including, but not limited to, Head Start, Even Start, PA Pre-K Counts, Full-day Kindergarten, and Grades 1 through 4 , and will include the historical and philosophical underpinnings of ECE, the PA Code of Conduct, and NAEYCE's Code of Ethical Conduct, and how these standards provide guidance and support to early childhood educators as they serve and act on behalf of the needs, rights and well-being of young children and their parents.
