Child Development Curriculum Map 2021-2022


Cambridge National Child Development (Exam Board: OCR)

This is a new qualification in Child Development that is the equivalent of a GCSE. It is a broad course that is split into three different units. Unit 1 gives students the essential knowledge and understanding for child development, covering reproduction, parental responsibility, antenatal care, birth, postnatal checks, care, conditions for development, childhood illnesses and child safety. In Unit 2, students will learn about the equipment needs of babies and young children and an understanding of the factors to be considered when choosing appropriate equipment to meet all of these needs. Students will also learn about nutrition and hygiene practices and will be given the opportunity to evaluate dietary choices. The last unit (Unit 3) gives students knowledge of, and skills in, developing activities to observe the development of a child up to the age of five. This unit will include researching, planning, carrying out activities with children and observing and reviewing these activities.

Assessment is 50% exam and 50% Controlled Assessment (split between two projects, one of which is a child study based on play activities and the other is from a selection of titles based around equipment, food and facilities).
