Emphasis is on the development of inclusive play-based curriculum for children from birth to age 12. Students benefit from opportunities to observe the application of best practices (Woodroffe - in the onsite lab school; Perth/Pembroke - in the community) and to apply their knowledge in real-world settings as they participate in field placements.
