Early Childhood Education and Care - University of Brighton

The foundations for emotional, physical and intellectual development are built during the early years of infancy. On our Early Childhood Education and Care BA(Hons) you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of child development from birth to five years. You will explore topics from theoretical perspectives, including education, sociology, psychology, health and social policy, and examine the roles of the family and wider institutions. You’ll benefit from observational study visits and field trips which have included a forest school. Visiting speakers from early childhood fields will encourage and challenge your critical reflection and understanding through lectures and seminars. A placement will allow you to explore potential career paths, consolidate your learning and build up practical experience. Your placement setting will depend on your aspirations – previous students have completed placements in children’s centres, schools, playgroups, hospitals and clinics. You will be taught by a highly qualified, experienced and enthusiastic team of early years education specialists, and have access to our modern facilities including an extensive collection of relevant texts in our curriculum centre.
