The Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Care and Education is an honours degree programme that provides you with multiple career opportunities working directly with young children and their families. The design and content of the programme has been determined by the Model Framework for Education, Training and Professional Development for the Early Childhood Care and Education sector. This ensures that our graduates are fully qualified to work in a variety of areas and recognised as expert practitioners. Providing the highest quality care and education for children in their formative years is essential in ensuring that they reach their unique potential. Over the course of the programme you will develop a comprehensive knowledge of child development and child psychology in the context of a broad understanding of contemporary society. In addition, you will acquire skills in areas such as children’s play, creative studies, care, education, children’s literature, sociology and social policy. In the second half of the programme you will be able to select a sequence of modules related to a specialised area of study, such as creative work with young people, diversity, or global perspectives.
