Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Studies)

This course is dedicated to producing quality graduates who are ready to take up employment across the early childhood education sector. This includes teaching children aged 0-3 years, pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, pre-primary and years 1-3 in a primary school.

Dealing specifically with children aged 0-8 years, early childhood studies focuses on the care and education of children in this age group in partnership with families and communities.

A key feature of this course is the equal emphasis given to both the theoretical groundings of early childhood education and the practical application of knowledge and skills in a wide range of early childhood settings.

A coordinated program of professional practice experiences at key points throughout the course allow students to make the connection between theory and practice, while building both professional and generic employability skills in real care and education environments.

In addition, students have the opportunity to tailor their learning experience by specialising in curriculum areas of particular interest.

Units are available in the degree enabling students to complete accreditation requirements to teach in Catholic schools.

Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
