This unit of study assists students to develop knowledge and skills in the language arts at the early childhood level. It assists students to gain and understanding of different theories about how young children develop language. It helps students to develop skills and knowledge about how to help young children begin to make meaning from the moment they are born through the preschool years in terms of how they learn to talk, listen and interact with those around them. There is a strong emphasis on play as a vehicle for language learning and family involvement in an inclusive and supportive learning environment for young children.
