This course provides an overview of how child development research and more contemporary views on brain development have influenced changes in early childhood curriculum and pedagogy around the world and in Singapore.  This knowledge should provide participants with an understanding of how “quality” in early childhood care and education is continually defined in different ways to meet different accountability needs.  The course will enable participants to (re)think their image of young children as active thinkers and learners, provide opportunity for participants to be able to observe children in their learning process, and facilitate participants’ understanding of what adults should do and say in order to facilitate young children’s active and experiential learning.  This course should serve the needs of those who are working on policies, programmes or projects pertaining to improving the lives of young children and their families.
