DESCRIPTION

This unit is designed for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) specialising in teaching young children from birth to 8 years. The unit introduces and interrogates current early childhood curriculum frameworks that guide reflective practice in child care, kindergarten, preparatory and early years of schooling to age 8 (EYLF in the context of the NQF, and State and National Curricula). Students will use theory and research to inform their understanding of curriculum and pedagogy that prioritises relationships, contexts and transitions. Strategies for creating emergent and play-based curriculum will be introduced and contextualised for specific early childhood settings.
