Brief description of modules/ Main modules:

The internship will be designed to firstly to orient and immerse students in the field sites related to Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) to make sense of and reflect upon different experiences in relation to theoretical concepts and principles presented in class. Secondly, it also aims to facilitate thinking about the field analytically and initiate the process of action and reflection as entrepreneurs. The internship placement will engage students with families and communities which could be potential sites for practice. The field experiences will also link with specific courses for a more directed and informed reflection on the field-experiences of students. The purpose of this component is also to connect the classroom with the field sites
