Children are innately creative and artistic in their play; therefore creative arts are central to early childhood education. This unit aims to extend and deepen students' knowledge of early childhood arts education and their confidence and skills as arts educators, with a particular focus on exploring young children's creativity across the Arts and on developing their own creativity as early childhood arts teachers. It builds on foundational knowledge gained in EDEC2009.
