You will learn how to engage young children in meaningful learning through innovative pedagogical practice and you will learn how to help them develop their creative, physical, personal, intellectual and social capabilities. You will learn how to support children's transition to school and their progress through the primary years. You will actively engage with contemporary theories, concepts and practices of early years and primary education, developing inclusive practices to meet children's diverse needs and building a repertoire of strategies to manage children's learning in classroom settings. You will also develop an understanding of how primary school aged children learn and how they can be taught effectively and creatively across all primary curriculum areas such as: English and literacies, mathematics, arts education, humanities and social education, science, health and physical education, and studies of the environment and sustainability.
