EUB108 Early Childhood Development and Learning (Birth-8 Years)

This unit introduces theories, features and processes of early childhood development and learning, from birth to 8 years. Child development and learning are shaped by both biological predispositions, and the interactions and experiences afforded to children in family and social contexts. Content in this unit is focused on children's physical, social and emotional development, along with speech, language and cognition. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges and perspectives on child development are embedded in this unit. Knowledge about the interrelatedness of each area of child development, including influences on how children develop and learn, is fundamental to early childhood education practice. Early childhood teachers apply child development knowledge to plan and faciliate appropriate learning experiences.Your learning in this unit contributes to knowledge and skills further developed in the professional experience units EUB140 and EUB241.
