This course is an excellent foundation to studying childcare. There are 3 broad topics of study:

· Patterns of Child Development

· Promoting Children’s Development through Play

· The Principles of Early Years Practice 

Students will begin to develop an understanding of the five areas of development and the expected milestones for the different ages of children from birth to age 8. The course also looks at the importance of play in a child’s learning and development. 

If you have an interest in children and would like to understand more about their development, then this course will be suitable for you. The course will give you a greater understanding as to how children behave in the way that they do and will teach you basic skills in caring for young children.
