Subject Description
This subject will introduce students to the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of children. The aim of the subject is to provide a sound theoretical foundation for further studies in education and psychology. While the focus is on children’s holistic development, the major focus is on concepts and theories related to children’s cognitive development and learning from birth to 18 years.
