Care as Curriculum: Investigating Teachers' Views on the Learning in Care
Bussey, Katherine; Hill, Diti
Early Child Development and Care, v187 n1 p128-137 2017
This article investigates the approach of care as curriculum and teachers' perceptions of this notion. It is a descriptive account of the interviews of four Aotearoa New Zealand-based infant and toddler teachers' perceptions of care as curriculum. Care as curriculum is a pedagogical approach that was brought to the research process. This was an approach that all of the participant teachers were familiar with due to their previous professional learning and development. The focus of this research project with infant and toddler teachers was on care rather than care and education. This is because, although care and education are integrally related, education often subsumes care. This article argues that for these four infant and toddler teachers, care is curriculum.
