Mia Mia Child and Family Study Centre
Servicing the community while researching early childhood education
Mia Mia Child and Family Study Centre offers the community, staff and students a long day care service for children aged from six weeks until they start school.
The Centre also provides unique opportunities for research and observational studies for units offered in child development, curriculum studies and early childhood education.
The observation of children at the centre helps students to see and understand the practical implications and the relevance of coursework to teaching. Three videos have been made to date and are used as a teaching resource in many early childhood institutions.
The Centre is used for
- child study
- curriculum planning, teaching studies and parent/teacher studies
- developing students’ abilities through mini-teaching and micro-teaching experience, and production of teaching films.
This Centre is recognised nationally and internationally for its service to young children and their families and for their thoughtful consideration of all aspects of the long daycare experience.
