The aim of EARLY CHILDHOOD PEDAGOGY AND PRACTICE II is to develop the student's pedagogical, special teaching, research and scientific reflection on the different scientific subjects present in his / her curriculum. The approaches start with the common core issues of different disciplines and gradually reveal the particularities of each so that the student is able to focus and create appropriate learning and social environments.
