PDC #4: Analysis of Child Care Environments (Designing Environments for Learning)

Your capstone experience includes a culminating project and portfolio that integrates knowledge and best practices for developing effective physical and cultural environments for your program.

This course can be applied to the Child Care Program Development Certificate.
