Addressing the latest changes in the curriculum, The Child in Focus incorporates the full range of the early years from birth to age 8 while linking to specific subject areas.

It provides an all-round introduction for students beginning an early childhood education program.

Part 1 is an introduction to childhood and the concepts which form early childhood education.

Part 2 covers discrete subject areas along with curriculum and pedagogy.

Part 3 focuses on professional practice and teaching skills, providing students with the grounding knowledge to continue in their degree.

The Child in Focus recognises the important role early childhood educators and teachers play in society and focuses on providing the foundational skills and knowledge for students to succeed in these roles. It is filled with contemporary content and has a strong emphasis on the development of critical reflection and adaptability to respond to increasingly complex social and family issues.
