EUB205 Child Health, Wellbeing, Safety and Movement

Due to the emerging understandings and concerns regarding children’s health and wellness, early childhood educators require the capacity to lead, plan, implement, and evaluate health practices in early childhood settings and to balance the health needs of individual children. Additionally, educators’ health and wellness is an important aspect of effective delivery of early childhood programs. This unit introduces foundational understandings related to child health, wellbeing, safety and movement that influence working with children, and that relate to the learning areas of Health and Physical Education and The Early Years Learning Framework. The unit focuses on food, nutrition and wellness principles as well as diverse, contemporary and cultural perspectives on health and wellness including Aboriginall and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
