Experts in the field of early-childhood development gathered at our Bloemfontein Campus on Thursday, 29 September 2011 to attend a seminar focusing on curriculum in the early years. The seminar, organised by our Faculty of Education, the Flemish Government and the Free State Department of Education attracted delegates from Belgium, Greece, the Netherlands, Kenya, and the United Kingdom.

Prof. Hasina Ebrahim, Associate Professor at our School for Social Sciences and Language Education, said the aim was to stimulate conversation on the realities of young children’s lives, the inequalities that exist and the implications for curriculum development in the early years.

Speakers at the seminar covered topics on worldviews of childhood development, indigenous curriculum perspectives and child participation in the curriculum in the early years.
