Gowrie Victoria and Open Universities Australia are offering a free introductory course for families, caregivers or anyone with an interest in early childhood education. Join our highly skilled trainers, Helen Lawrence and Caitlin O’Connell, while they explore the many aspects of child development and gain insight into how to support infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers during this critical stage of life.
Early childhood education involves many aspects, including child learning and behaviour, nutrition, health, brain development. Theory can only provide us with an outline and framework for child development patterns. Early childhood educators are able to apply this theory to each individual child, creating play-based programs and activities to inspire, delight and educate.
You will receive a Certificate of Achievement upon completion, however this is not an accredited qualification.
