Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood
It is widely recognised in early years research that the first years of a child's life are vitally important to their overall growth and development. These early years have life long effects for children's well being. For children, families and early years educators, these years are impacted through a range of complex issues such as family context, health, poverty, disability, gender, culture, environmental sustainability, policy developments and the range of rituals and customs associated with child rearing. This course critically investigates and analyses these issues within a framework of children's rights and participation.
