This unit explores the historical and contemporary influences on childhood and the social constructions of families and childhoods in Australia and throughout the world. Students will explore how concepts of childhood impact on the education and care of infants, toddlers and young children. The image of the child and children's rights are a focus in a global society and as a result traditional understandings of 'childhood' as being universally experienced within cultures are being challenged.
