Skill in observing young children is a key element in developing an understanding of their growth, development and learning. This module is designed to offer the opportunity at the beginning of the programme for students to develop confidence and strength in their knowledge of young children, through study within the university and observations in settings for young children. It aims to promote a respect for all young children, knowledge of their competences and interests, and understanding of their behaviour as individuals, in groups and as part of an institutional setting.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
