Students focus on children and their development from conception to 8 years. Students develop knowledge and understanding of young children through exploration of concepts such as the development, needs, and rights of children, the value of play, concepts of childhood and families, and the roles of parents and caregivers. They also consider the importance of behaviour management, child nutrition, and the health and well-being of children.
Students investigate contemporary issues that are relevant to children and their development. They consider broad themes such as those related to children who are migrants or refugees, displacement, health issues for children in Indigenous communities, access to education, the exploitation of children, literacy and numeracy, disability and equity, child protection, gender stereotyping in play, clothing, textiles and merchandising, and children’s television.
