Exploring Early Childhood

Our society is increasingly recognising children’s experiences in the early childhood years as the foundation for future growth, development and learning. The Exploring Early Childhood course provides students with an overview of development and issues within an early childhood context, and the opportunity to consider these in relation to themselves, their family and community. As well as reflecting on the personal relevance of issues, students will be encouraged to consider the implications for future possible interactions with children, be these as a parent, friend, carer or educator. Students will also have opportunities of observing young children at play and interacting with young children.
