Description Educators have a key responsibility for guiding and facilitating young children's positive behaviours, their sense of belonging, and wellbeing. This unit provides students with an opportunity to analyse a range of theoretical approaches and various developmental and socio-cultural contextual factors that influence children's behaviours, learning and social interactions. Specifically, students will develop knowledge about diverse approaches to guiding children positively in partnership with families that are responsive to the children's needs, family's aspirations and expectations. Students will apply the legislative and ethical protocols in designing a guidance plan to support the development of positive behaviours and socio-emotional wellbeing in an early childhood setting. Students will also critically evaluate their personal and professional dispositions relating to guiding young children's positive learning and behaviours.
