Students are placed in cooperating community agencies in a variety of early childhood settings such as child care centres, family day homes, kindergartens, hospital paediatric wards, parent day-out centres, and centres for exceptional children. Under supervision of trained and experienced personnel, students have an opportunity to integrate theory and practice in the development of skills for working with young children and their families. The students progress through a developmental sequence of experiences throughout the term. Students are also encouraged to evaluate themselves in terms of strengths and weaknesses. Students are encouraged to complete 016-122 Learning Through Play prior to commencing Field Placement II. They may, however, take it concurrently with their placement.
