Early Childhood Development Programme Support

Course Code




Prepare Early Childhood Development programmes with support. You have three areas of focus: First you will analyse the context in order that your learning programme is specific, relevant, and appropriate. Second you will use your analysis to plan a daily and the weekly programme based on your analysis. Third you will reflect on your programmes and, where necessary, make any adjustments to perfect the programmes.

Remember ? the process is an important one: analyse, plan, reflect. It is a life-skill, and you can use it in your daily living. You will also develop three invaluable life skills: analytical/critical thinking, creativity, and reflection
