A 10-hour field experience is required in which students observe and participate in reflective analysis of typical and atypical preschool and kindergarten settings serving children and their families. Students must demonstrate the ability to understand preschool and kindergarten children’s development and the ability to recognize and respect the varying cultural contexts of children.
