This practicum course requires a six week practicum in an inclusive centre for children birth-to-three years. Throughout the course students will reflect in depth upon their previous teaching experiences in relation to the current practicum placement. The intent of the practicum is to implement opportunities for planned and spontaneous programming and consider respectful interactions with young children. Furthermore, throughout the practicum a student will demonstrate advanced professional competencies, knowledge and reflective skills.
Students must have 500 hours of work experience.
Prior to practicum placement, students must submit the following documentation in accordance with the Child Care Regulations: a resume, three references, criminal record check, medical report and TB test. It is recommended but not required that students have some experience working with children (birth to 5 years of age) as an employee or volunteer.
