You’ll mainly focus on the educational, social and health care of children from birth to 8 years of age, gaining an appreciation of how they think and learn, as well as developing an understanding of how to facilitate this learning through a range of strategies.It is often said that children are the future. Here at BGU, we offer you the chance to shape that future.

You will gain an appreciation of how children think and learn, as well as the policies and practices which can support them and their families. You will have the opportunity to put this learning into practice through a relevant early years placement in each year of study.Throughout the course, you will acquire the necessary skills for working with young children in a challenging and changing environment. In your final year, you will be able to tailor an individual research project to your particular interests or career aspirations, and you may also be able to choose the setting of your final-year placement.Early Childhood is a growing sector and the skills learnt on this course will enable you to enter the children’s workforce in a range of different roles.
