Course Description

In earlier modules in the Newcomer Series, settlement is described as a process of transition and the distinctive needs of all those involved in settlement are considered, with a special focus on the needs of the newcomer child. In this module you will have an opportunity to think specifically about the challenges of meeting the needs of newcomer children in group settings such as classrooms and to consider the overall role of the early childhood program or school in the settlement of young immigrants and refugees.
