Description Early childhood teachers work in complex and dynamic environments that are influenced by historical, social, cultural and political contexts. As advocates for quality children and family services that embrace social justice, inclusivity and equity, early childhood teachers must enact their ethical, legal and professional responsibilities. Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services are similar to small businesses, requiring teachers to be knowledgeable about systems, strategies and processes to meet organisation goals and mandatory regulatory and licensing requirements. This unit builds students' foundational skills in strategic planning, policy development, staff management, conflict resolution and team building. Students will investigate effective management and administration dimensions, including human resources, marketing, financial accountability, governance and compliance processes.
