Com Pac: 5G34. Children are at the centre of what we do in early childhood education. As our professional knowledge and skill develops, it becomes clearly evident that the child's needs and interests are the impetus for learning through play. Consequently, when we are designing child-centred programs, we integrate and synthesise all we know about child development, play, and effective interactions with children. This ComPac provides the processes for such synthesis of previous study so that you can begin using the child-centred approach of emergent curriculum to plan developmentally sound play-based programs. To complete the requirements for this Com Pac, you will need to use a camera and develop/print pictures. You may also require access to a tape recorder.
