As awareness increases of the critical importance of healthy development and learning in the early years, so too does the need for early childhood professionals with the knowledge, skills and understanding to guide and support young children and families in establishing a solid foundation for health, well-being and lifelong learning.

During this online masters programme you’ll explore current research and insights related to the development of the whole child: body, mind and spirit.

You’ll examine current thinking on the strengths and challenges of young children as you actively engage in theoretical discussions on child development and learn to apply these theories in culturally responsive ways.

Through critical reflection, self-assessment, goal-setting and other practical tools, this online education programme will help you grow as an early childhood professional and make a difference at a local, regional or global level.
