Early childhood development forms a crucial part of a child's make-up: how they first see themselves, how they think, how they should function and how they expect others to function in relation to them. Students who feel passionate about contributing to the process of strengthening a child's identity and 'sense of self' should consider a career in early childhood education.
There are many exciting opportunities in early childhood education which include:
- Long day care, kindergartens, playgroups, parent education and specialist children's programs
- Work with children in individual or group programs that are developed to inspire, motivate and stimulate skill development and learning.
