Subject

Early childhood studies

The importance of developing a graduate workforce of professionals who are able to play an active part in helping young children to achieve the best possible start in life is a major issue that various governments are addressing in both the UK and abroad. Early Childhood Studies not only offers a firm foundation for future career options, it also presents an opportunity to undertake rigorous academic study that is informed by a variety of disciplines including sociology, psychology, policy and gender studies. This course will give you the opportunity to examine in detail aspects such as: different perspectives on early childhood; policy and practice in working with children under seven years of age; societal and cultural views of younger childhood; key life transitions for children in their early years; issues of safeguarding, development and diversity. Early Childhood Studies is distinctive in its focus on the 0 to under 7 age range. It will be of particular interest to those wish to focus their studies and future careers on this age group.
