Foundations of Professional Practice II

ECCE 179 Foundations of Professional Practice II provides an overview of the field of early childhood education from a philosophical perspective as influenced by both historical and current contexts. Students will examine anti-bias principles and approaches to working with young children. By exploring their own adult role in play environments, learners will integrate thinking regarding philosophies of least restrictive environments and inclusionary practice. Within the framework of the Early Childhood Educators of British Columbia (ECEBC) Code of Ethics, learners will develop an appreciation of the role of change in the lives of young children, their families and community, while at the same time honouring the importance of becoming a lifelong learner as an ECCE professional.
