Infancy and Early Development - ECHE118

This unit focuses on the development of infants and young children aged birth-4 years within the Australian social context. Theories and research, which attempts to describe and explain early childhood development and individual differences are critically examined. Implications for the prenatal, cognitive, social/emotional, language and motor development during the first three years of life are also examined. Pre-service teachers are encouraged to make links between content, research, to observations and experiences with infants and very young children within early childhood settings.
