Wellness for Children
In this course, students will take a comprehensive look at Children's Wellness in a child care setting. The Children's Wellness course has been broken into 3 large blocks of material. These blocks include: Safety; Nutrition; and Health as they relate to young children. Each of these areas will constitute approximately 1/3 of the subject material covered. Strategies for maintaining a healthy child care environment will be presented. Information on staff health and infection control will help learners to manage good care with minimum health risks. Creating a safe child care environment will be examined in depth. Accessories, behaviours and conditions for safety risk in both indoor and outdoor environments will form much of the safety dialogue. Providing nutritional balance in child care will be a focus. Students will have an opportunity to apply their knowledge in both theoretical and practical ways. This course is offered through OntarioLearn by the host college, Durham college.
