You are required to demonstrate if you have developed the unit’s skills and knowledge without the support of GenAI. If you use GenAI tools in your assessment task, it may result in an academic integrity breach against you as described in the Student Academic and NonAcademic Misconduct Rules, Section 3.

Submission Word document submitted to Turnitin (for written assessments).
Unit Learning Outcomes This assessment task maps to the following ULOs:
ULO1: describe and justify curriculum in early childhood education and care services.
ULO2: understand and demonstrate conceptual knowledge related to key learning areas for children from birth to five years.
ULO3: argue, with reference to the literature, how curriculum key learning areas can be applied to support children’s learning.
ULO4: create and analyse learning environments of curriculum key learning areas for children’s development and learning explain the role of the early childhood educator
Rationale
This unit develops conceptual knowledge of the holistic approach to curriculum in the early childhood setting. A focus is on an integrated approach to learning key curriculum areas of science and technology, mathematics, creative arts, language, history, and physical wellbeing for children aged from birth to five years. Students develop children’s conceptual knowledge of these areas, with links made to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) (2022) and the National Quality Standard (ACECQA, 2020).
Task Description
The purpose of this assignment is to develop deeper knowledge and understanding of how everyday objects, routines, and resources in the early childhood setting can be used to promote children’s learning and development across the key learning areas (Australian Curriculum- Foundation) with links to the EYLF and learning outcomes and NQS QA. It is also important that early childhood educators have a deep understanding of the role of children’s play in these learning environments to best promote children’s conceptual knowledge in key learning areas appropriate to the birth to five years. Assessment 2 requires you to analyse 2 early childhood education photos. You will analyse
1
one (1) photo in relation to the Infant and Toddler age group, and one (1) photo in relation to the Pre-school age group. Your analysis of each photo will explain how the environment is used to support children’s learning and development. Relevant links to theory and key learning areas and the EYLF will be used in addition to justifying the pedagogical approaches and the role of the teacher to support children’s early learning and development.
Task Instructions
There are six photos of environments in early childhood settings provided in the Assessment 2 folder.
Choose two of the photos considering one for the Infant and Toddler age group, and one for the Preschool age group. Then respond to the following for each (750 words for each photo):
1. Explain how each of the environments in the photo can be used to promote children’s learning and development. Use theoretical and unit reference sources to support your explanation.
2. Analyse the knowledge and understandings children can learn within each environment across two key learning areas [e.g., Physical Health & Well Being, Science, Maths, English (Literacy & Language), Creative Arts, Technologies, History] (Australian Curriculum – Foundation) with relevant links to the EYLF Learning Outcomes and NQS QA.
3. Explain and justify the pedagogical approach/es and roles the early childhood educator could take in each of the learning environments to promote children’s learning and development.
Use a minimum of 8 references/scholarly sources that substantially support your discussion, including reference to unit content, research literature, Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) (DET, 2022), National Quality Standard QA (ACECQA, 2018), and the Australian Curriculum (ACARA, 2022).
• Use APA 7 referencing throughout and double-lined spacing, Times Roman 12-point Font.
