Welcome

Welcome to the module,”The Young Child and Learning”, which forms part of the course BEd (early childhood development). We hope that you will find the subject matter interesting, constructive and useful. Accept the high standards we have set as a challenge and try to avoid adopting a negative approach to your studies. Use this module to develop your insight and knowledge, and not merely to pass the examination.

This tutorial letter is an important part of the tutorial matter for the module EDT201K. Study it carefully and keep it handy because you will have to refer to it frequently during the course of the year. Use it now as a basis for planning your programme of study in this module. Plan your study programme as soon as possible because you will have to work at a fair pace throughout the year if you wish to succeed in your studies.

The general information and departmental regulations applicable to this module are set out in this tutorial letter. This material is presented under separate headings. 1.2

Tutorial matter

STUDY MATERIAL

Inventory letter

When you register, in addition to the tutorial matter available, you will receive an inventory letter for the current year. The inventory lists only those items that are available at the Department of Dispatch in Pretoria or at the university's regional office on the day you register. Students who register at a regional office will receive the rest of the available tutorial matter by registered post from Pretoria.

Check the tutorial matter you have received against the inventory. Unless indicated otherwise (eg "out of stock"), you should have received all the items listed in the inventory letter. Should any of the items be missing, please follow the instructions of the reverse side of the inventory letter immediately. Please use only the telephone number on the reverse side of the inventory letter when enquiring about tutorial matter that you have not received.
