Programming & Planning in Early Childhood Settings explores a broad range of approaches, concepts and issues in early childhood curriculum.
Chapters reflect on the terms ‘planning’ and ‘programming’ in early childhood settings, what is authentic curriculum for young children, and effective teaching strategies to extend young children’s learning.
There is a strong focus on social and cultural theories, and learning styles, which helps you recognise the need for collaboration between yourself as an educator, children and families in order to develop appropriate programs.
This revised and updated eighth edition shows you how chapters of the text are relevant to the Australian Professional Standards for teachers. It includes real-life examples, reflections, and case studies to help you understand educational theories, philosophies and frameworks.
