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 the foundation for reading, maths and science, and helps
young children develop their social and emotional skills.
This course qualifies you to teach children aged from birth to five years in prior-to-school
settings such as childcare centres or preschools, as well as for roles in consultancy and
professional development work in children’s services.
