Course Information

When children are exposed to positive educational experiences prior to school, their learning capabilities – and in turn, their chances of excelling in school – are greatly improved. Quality early childhood education provides a strong foundation for learning, and helps young children develop their social and emotional skills.

The Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) qualifies you to teach children aged from birth to five years in prior-to-school settings such as childcare centres or preschools. It also prepares you for other roles in children’s services.
