Certain developmental needs and traits are associated with younger school-age children, while others are typical of older school-age children and youth. While the differences between school-age children of different ages are not clear-cut, there are some general traits and tasks that are often associated with younger (ages 5-7), middle (ages 8-10), and older (ages 11-12) school-age children and youth. In this course, we will explore the needs and characters of children ages 5 to 7, to help staff plan appropriate activities and guidance strategies.
