About this course:ECE students may take this course as a stand-alone, with pre-requisite courses in 1) child development and 2) ECE curriculum. Students will find an early childhood care and education site prior to starting the course and commit to two 3-hour shifts per week in the classroom. The classroom mentor teacher must hold an ECE permit at the Associate Teacher level or above. Sites should demonstrate a commitment to developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate practice, as well as to collaborative relationships with families/guardians. UCLA Extension and the UCLA Early Care and Education Centers are launching a pilot program, supervised field experience. We have only 6 placements available for Summer 2023. If you are interested in this opportunity, please apply here.
Completion of EDUC X 21 Child Development course and EDUC X 24 Introduction to Curriculum and Learning Environments course (or of equivalent courses from other recognized institutions) is a prerequisite for enrolling into this course. A minimum GPA of 3.0 in your ECE courses is required. The mentor teacher has to have a Master Teacher Child Development permit.
