This unit is the first of four professional experience units that provide opportunities for students to gain teaching experience in early childhood education and care settings. It enables students to apply the theories and strategies covered in other units of study and to reflect on the links between theory and practice. This first professional experience placement will consist of observations and documentation of 3 to 5 year old children's development and social engagement as they go about their daily activities in an early childhood setting. Students will prepare and present learning experiences for individuals and small groups based on assessments of children's strengths, interests and engagement with learning evidenced from observational data.
