EC722 : The Early Childhood Curriculum

This course continues to build on your developing knowledge and understanding of Te Whāriki (Ministry of Education, 2017) and looks at how the early childhood curriculum guides subject content of learning areas in The New Zealand Curriculum (Ministry of Education, 2007), the curriculum used in primary and secondary schools. Although the learning areas such as Language and Literacy, Arts, Mathematics, Science and Technology are discussed separately in this course, the interconnectedness of these areas is examined and emphasised. The course suggests a range of practical ways to support each of the curriculum areas.
