Early childhood education
An early childhood degree focuses on the study of teaching during the period from birth to five years old. As an early childhood graduate you play a significant role in the intellectual and social development of young children during these crucial early years. Degrees in this area prepare you for both teaching and non-teaching roles within educational settings and related fields. You will learn to work with diverse families and children in settings including childcare centres and preschools.
