Description

The theoretical, practical and planning guide to understanding child development and learning
Child Development and Learning integrates concepts of learning and development into one concise text for child development. With a clear and engaging style, it presents up-to-date research while offering practical applications that will relate to students’ personal and professional lives. This book takes a holistic focus to understanding child development, incorporating the age ranges from infancy to adolescence. Within each of the five sections of the book there are four chapters based on chronological age, which look at the developmental stages within each domain. The sixth section provides an overview of how to plan for the five sections within the Australian education system, from early childhood education and care through the primary school years and senior schooling. Child Development and Learning allows students to link theoretical concepts with practical strategies while providing examples of how to effectively program and plan for learning and development.
