Reflective Practice in Infant Toddler Settings

Author: Sue Martin

1.5 ECE Hours

This is a module designed for practicing Early Childhood Educators who desire to review elements of their current practice with the intention of designing, implementing and altering parts of their practice to meet the particular needs of very young children and improving their responsiveness to, and interactions with, babies and toddlers. Your reflection might be on a major scale, or be related to a more minor issue that would be addressed. An integral part of the philosophy must be reflective of culture and family; not only the individual child.

This module is an overview of Reflective practice, and part of a series designed for infant and toddler professionals. The first module is relevant to all age groups as a starting point for the journey of reflective practice.
