Your community is planning to open a brand-new child development community center. Now that you are an expert in the field, you have been chosen to create a proposal for interactive, fun, and educational programming activities that will be provided for children and adolescents in this center. The chosen activities must be developmentally appropriate and based in theory. You will present your ideas to the city council with a written proposal describing the programming in detail. You have been asked to propose programming for the following five different age groups in the child development community center:
- Infant (0-1 year)
- Toddler (1-3 years)
- Early Childhood (3-6 years)
- Middle to Late Childhood (7-12 years)
- Adolescence (13-18 years)
Use this Community Child Development Center Proposal Template to organize your proposal. Enter the requested information on the title page where indicated. Where you find the text, “In this section you will describe the activity …” within the proposal template, please remove that and enter your own content. The headings in bold should not be altered. The final content for each “room” will consist of three paragraphs that will address three distinct activities that address physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development for that age group. Table 5.1 in your textbook will be very useful in identifying the major milestones in physical development.
In your Community Child Proposal,
- Describe the activity in some detail (provide more than just the name of the activity).
- Identify the specific domain-related theory concept that supports the use of this activity.
- Identify how the activity enhances physical, cognitive, or psychosocial development
Must be 9 double-spaced pages not including title and reference.
