The Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Care and Education

The BA in Early Childhood Care and Education is an innovative and exciting four-year programme, which focuses on providing students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to enable them to become professional leaders in the provision of care and education for children from birth to six years in a variety of educational settings. The strong practical element of the programme provides opportunities for students to develop their skills through engaging in placements in a range of early education settings. The inclusive focus of the programme develops students' awareness of the needs of children from a diversity of backgrounds and children with special educational needs.

The programme is delivered by a committed and dedicated team who have extensive experience and expertise in the field of early childhood care and education. The National Children's Strategy (2000) states that 'Children's early education and developmental needs will be met through quality childcare services'. We share the vision articulated in the National Children's Strategy that quality childcare services provide a means of meeting children's early education and developmental needs. We believe that high-quality early education can make the crucial difference in helping all children to develop to their potential and we are committed to providing a programme to enable all of our graduates to make this crucial difference in the lives of children. We welcome students on the programme who share our commitment to making a real difference in the lives of children.
