For your Final Project, you will integrate the knowledge that you have gained about guiding the social and emotional development of infants and toddlers to create a professional presentation. In a ten- to fifteen-slide PowerPoint (not including the title and reference slides), you will address the following scenario:

Scenario: As the new director of a recently opened early childhood center, you are in charge of presenting a 30-minute presentation to prospective families who are seeking care for their infants and/or toddlers. To ensure that all required material is covered, you must create a presentation that addresses each of the areas described below. You will need to design each slide to be clear, concise, and aesthetically pleasing.

Preparing the Presentation
The presentation must include:

  • Ten to fifteen slides (not including separate title and reference slides) formatted according to APA style.
  • Introduction to the Center
    • Provide your personal introduction that includes your preferred teaching style and a detailed overview of your experience as an educator (if you have not worked with children, you have most likely been an educator with your own children, family members, co-workers, church members, etc.).
    • Describe the Program’s Philosophy- Consider how the course content informed your program’s philosophy on how children learn and grow (this is not the same as your personal philosophy but will overlap). Please describe your program’s philosophy, which should be supported by the theoretical perspective that aligns most with your personal view as well as your experience and knowledge you have acquired in this course. View the example of a program’s philosophy here..
