This subject prepares early childhood educators to design and implement authentic arts education programs in early childhood education and care settings. Play-based learning principles will be applied to this design process and experiences will be developmentally appropriate. An inquiry approach that encompasses the development of arts literacies across the Creative and Media Arts curriculum is taken.
