ECE116M - Child Health, Safety and Nutrition (3-0-3)

This course will provide the student with a variety of health, safety and nutrition concepts. These concepts will enable the individual to implement preventive health and safety practices based on NH Childcare Licensing Regulations and Federal Law. Students will be required to complete 10 online health and safety training modules through the New Hampshire Health and Safety Training Program, which is mandated by the Child Care Licensing Bureau, in order to be eligible to work in an early childhood education program. In addition, students will be able to develop menus for meals and snacks which are nutritious, appealing and age appropriate for the young child. Recognition and treatment of child abuse victims will be addressed. It should be noted that CPR and First Aid information is covered in this course; however, certification is NOT part of the course. Students are required to purchase a Taskstream electronic portfolio subscription.
