- identity the basic abilities and the prerequisites of acquisition and development of the skills in the different domains, specifically linguistic and communicative, and socio-relational from 3 to 6 years of age;
- know and understand the role that cognitive competences, but also emotional, motivational and social have in the learning processes and for promoting well-being at school, from 3 to 6 years of age;
- know the main methods and instruments for observe and assess in developmental and educational psychology approaches, in reference to preschool.
2. Applying Knowledge and Understanding
By the end of the course the student will be able to:
- consider critically the relationships between the individual and the contextual factors that influence the development of learning and language in typical and atypical populations, in order to understand individual differences in development and learning and to identify the factors that promote development and learning in preschool children;
- analyse and choose the best instruments for the observation and assessment of preschool children’s development and learning;
- apply the knowledge gained through observation to the design and implementation of learning and teaching activities, particularly with regard to the promotion of well-being and inclusion in risk situations in preschool;
- promote the preschool children’s affective, cognitive and socio-relational independence;
- identify the different learning styles of girls and boys, evaluating the individual differences, with a view to the promotion of well-being and inclusion in preschool.
3. Making Judgements
By the end of the course the student will be able to:
- reflect critically and independently on the processes involved in, and the factors that promote, the development of the preschool child’s learning and relational wellbeing;
- evaluate his/her own levels of psycho-educational and relational competence when designing projects, identifying areas of weakness and improvement strategies in preschool.
4. Communication Skills
By the end of the course the student will be able to:
- use language clearly, including technical terms where appropriate, in discussing typical and atypical behaviour and levels of ability in the various developmental domains in preschool children;
- communicate with the preschool children in ways that promote knowledge and skills – cognitive, linguistic, relational – at different levels;

- communicate clearly and effectively with parents in dialogues on the educational choices open to them in infant school.

- main tools for assessment of precursors of learning abilities in preschool and learning abilities in primary school (e.g., reading ability, text comprehension, writing etc.);
- trainings and interventions for supporting acquisition of precursors of learning abilities in preschool and learning abilities in school(e.g., reading ability, text comprehension, writing etc.) and socio-emotional competence in in preschool and primary school.

La struttura generale del tirocinio prevede:
- II annualità 100 ore di tirocinio pari a 4 CFU
- III annualità 100 ore di tirocinio pari a 4 CFU
- IV annualità 175 ore di tirocinio pari a 7 CFU
