No placement: Early childhood students getting creative with pop-up playground

When Victoria University’s early childhood students couldn’t go to childcare centers for placement, they decided to take the matter into their own hands. The Mini Maddern pop-up playground in Melbourne’s West is a collaboration with Maribyrnong City Council providing a place for children to play and connect with the community. It is also a unique placement experience for VU students, giving them the opportunity to get invaluable, hands on experience without having to visit a childcare center at all.
