About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. The unit examines the implications of cross-disciplinary research into children’s early life experiences for creating innovative services and service models that both foster children’s early learning and encourage and strengthen families and carers’ capacity to support their children’s early development and wellbeing. In this way, students will gain an understanding of the complex field of early intervention and prevention, consider national and international innovations in policy and service delivery, examine new tools and frameworks for community intervention, analyse discourses associated with family and social disadvantage and consider how communities can best support young children. Studying this unit will provide an opportunity to consider the nexus between early childhood education and child and family services, how these might interact and work together seamlessly and the implications for the kind of knowledge and skills required to work in these innovative contexts. Students will reflect on the complex interrelationship between collaboration, research and practice to identify their role as community leaders enhancing families’ and carers’ capacities and children’s development, learning, health and wellbeing.
