Power, entitlement, social justice and ethical discourses are all concepts with which early childhood educators must familiarise themselves and act upon in leadership and educator roles with children under five years. This unit enables students to become aware of and to develop reflective understandings about contemporary issues affecting families and early childhood contexts, professional accountability, professional conduct, responding ethically, communicating ethically with people from a wide and diverse population, and conflict and issue resolution.
