This unit enables students to experience the professional work of early childhood teachers over a sustained period - 30 days, in a Birth to 5 year old setting or preschool setting. The unit requires students to demonstrate growing independence as critically reflective early childhood teachers, to reflect on developing professional profiles and to evaluate these experiences in relation to on-going professional growth. Students will build to a teaching load of four days per week (or equivalent) with the balance of the time focused on developing a teacher-led research project designed to explore and/or improve an aspect of pedagogy, curriculum or child development.
