Observation Date: 10/20/11 Start and End Time: 8:45 -9:45 am Due Date: 11/1/11 The name of the center is Child Development Lab School located at Truman College. They offer full- and part- day play based Preschool for children ages 3-5, Head Start , State Pre- kindergarten, and private pay program. Their curriculum is creative and based on children's play and their own inventions. They promote expression through many different forms and materials. In the classrooms, children are encouraged to develop their own ideas through exploration and experimentation. They are licensed by the State of Illinois to operate the school. They serve 44 children and families as of now but are allowed to serve up to 60 children and families. The teacher to child ratio is 1 teacher for 10 children. The child care staff is highly trained in Early Childhood Education. The teachers are qualified with Bachelor’s Degree and Type o4 Certificate. For assistant teacher, they require Associate’s Degree or Advanced Certificate in Child Development. They offer further training to teachers with professional development opportunities each year throughout the City Colleges of Chicago. All the teachers are trained in CPR and First Aid. They welcome children with special needs and also make accommodations for them. All the children take naps every day for 2 hours. As a parent I believe they offer a high quality program and a very good curriculum in terms of children. They follow the belief that children learn through play and that’s the best thing that I like in this school. They let children explore the world through their own eyes and let them do the discoveries on their own. They encourage children to think, practice, and keep practicing till they get their own inventions or solutions.

In terms of teachers, all the teachers are qualified with Bachelor’s Degree and Associate’s Degree in Child Development and have experiences of many years, which assure me that the teachers are skilled in child care. I also believe that the teacher to child ratio is good for the 3-5 ages of children. Suppose in 1 classroom, if they have 17 children, then

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
