Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE)

“The foundations for emotional, physical and intellectual development are built during the early years of infancy. With our Early Childhood Education and Care courses you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of child development from birth to five years.”

Why an ECCE program?

A diploma in early childhood education and care offers an excellent framework for a number of occupations that include working with children. You should graduate from this program relaxed, articulate, highly skilled and well-equipped to participate as a professional in a number of sectors including health, education and social care.

The course offers information and skills in the subject, as well as opportunities to put into action what you learn through placements and work-related experience. Through teamwork, you can also gain transferable leadership skills and project and time management that will be valued wherever your career takes you.

You must obtain the credential required for all early years providers working with children from birth to 5 years of age who have to follow the Early Years foundation stage (EYFS) regulations.

Through your course work, you will explore topics from theoretical perspectives, including education, sociology, psychology, health and social policy, and examine the roles of the family and wider institutions.

What is the ECCE program about?

Whether you want to become a graduate practitioner in the early childcare education field, or if you have an interest in working with children and families, this program will be for you. The curriculum focuses on the growth, development and treatment of young children from birth until age 7. Students will have the ability to become positive, self-conscious, insightful students able to work in multi-agency environments as professionals. The content of the program draws on international research and experience, including children's global perspectives, different curricula and developed as well as evolving theory of early childhood.

You'll hear from lecturers who have several years of experience in early childhood settings and related careers including; primary teaching, nursing, health care, and center management for children.

Embedded in the programme are four principles:

  • Each child is a competent and capable individual.
  • hildren’s Rights (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child UNCRC) are recognised and promoted.
  • The child is seen holistically in the context of family and society.
  • Cooperation with others (parents, colleagues, other professionals etc.) is actively sought for the benefit of the child.
