Our MA in Early Childhood is designed to meet the interests of a wide range of participants from nurseries, universities, colleges, schools and local authorities. Early Childhood is a unique phase in the life of a child and, as such, requires a great deal of knowledge and expertise from those working in the sector. Our MA in Early Childhood aims to support you to develop an in-depth understanding of a wide range of topics related to early childhood.

Our MA in Early Childhood is designed to meet the interests of a wide range of participants from nurseries, schools, universities, colleges and local authorities, as well as professionals working with young children outside of education – for example in children’s services and health and social care. The common factor for all potential participants is the desire to develop their expertise in the field of early childhood.

The blend of students from different professional backgrounds enables discussion, debate and the sharing of experiences in a supportive and welcoming environment, facilitated by staff who are experts in the field of early childhood.
