Content

This unit will provide students with opportunities to engage with the education and care of children from birth to two years of age. In a professional experience placement, students will engage with infants and very young children, teachers and families and will be able to critically analyse and reflect on the components of quality environments and programmes for infants and very young children.

 

Students will be able to make critical connections between theory and practice, and incorporate their understandings about the National Quality Framework legislative and regulatory requirements, including the child care accreditation requirements, and National and Victorian Curriculum documents in the context of teaching, learning and care for children from birth to two years of age.
