The Bachelor of Early Childhood Education is your pathway to an exciting career as an early childhood teacher where you will gain a contemporary body of knowledge and skills to educate children from birth to five years across a variety of settings and professional roles. You will study the significance of the development and learning that occurs between birth and starting school for every child. You will also learn about educational theory and contemporary approaches to empower you to design and deliver curriculum that enhances each child’s learning dispositions and cognitive, social, emotional and physical development skills.
Throughout your four years, you will develop skills in play pedagogy to teach literacy, numeracy, science, technology, engineering, arts, music, dance, drama, multimodal media and STEM to young children. This will be balanced with focus on aspects of early childhood education such as safety, health and wellbeing; documentation, planning and assessment; sustainable practices; working with families and communities; understanding and guiding children’s behaviour; diversity and inclusion; advocacy and research; pedagogical and educational leadership; and service provision and management.
As part of the degree, you will actively engage in four professional experience placements (80 days) in a variety of early childhood education settings that will develop your teaching practice with young children.
The Bachelor of Early Childhood Education will prepare you to be a highly competent, skilled and transformative early childhood teacher.
