Department of Early Childhood Education

In the Department of Early Childhood Education we aim to broaden your knowledge of the young children’s cognitive, linguistic, physical, social and aesthetic development and how this development relates to their learning skills. We undertake to provide you with a range of learning opportunities and knowledge through a variety of open distance learning programmes that incorporate cutting-edge learner support systems and approaches, innovative research initiatives, and responsive community engagement interventions.

Join us for a very exciting, rewarding and challenging experience.
