If you want to work in the early education sector and you're interested in the way that young children learn and develop, this one-year top-up course could be right for you.
The course establishes your knowledge of child development, health and diversity between 0 and 7 years. It emphasises the contribution of child-centred play-based approaches to learning.
We'll encourage you to question the aims and values of education and early years’ practices and processes – as well as the philosophies, beliefs and attitudes behind them. You'll also examine current Government-supported initiatives and policies.
