Competitors demonstrate their knowledge of developmentally appropriate practice and their ability to prepare and implement learning activities for children 3-5 years old. Competitors will prepare a written lesson plan and take a written test assessing their knowledge of child development and effective teaching strategies. They will demonstrate their understanding of the unique age-related learning characteristics of young children and the relevant social interactions as they implement the lesson.
