fbpx Micro-credential certification in Arts Education in Early Childhood: Creative & Aesthetic Expression (BEd) | Africa Open Learning
Overview: 

Much can be learnt about, with and through the arts.  The different art forms allow us to respond and express our understanding and feelings about ourselves and our world in ways unlike other forms of meaning-making. The early childhood professional must be equipped with a theoretical and philosophical understanding of the importance of the arts in children's lives and the skills and confidence to articulate this importance and to apply this understanding to support creativity and arts-based learning.
