Theme: Early Childhood Education
Age Group: Early Years
Placement at Building Blocks CFE is done as a combination of observation and a hands on learning experience. Early learning is an essential piece in setting children up for success in their learning later in life. At Building Blocks we focus on the development of the Whole Child. This means we not only focus on their cognitive development but also their physical, social, and emotional development as well. Through a placement at Building Blocks, student teachers would have the opportunity to experience different ways of helping children to develop self-regulation at a developmentally appropriate level, how to plan activities that are fun and engaging, but also loaded with learning opportunities. They will see firsthand different ways to engage a large group, grab their attention, redirect behaviors, comfort, and support children in both social-emotional and physical development. Student teachers would be given the opportunity to design and implement a variety of activities and circle times if they so desired.
