This full-time programme of study integrates theory and practice relevant to early childhood teaching. As a field based programme students work with children on a weekly basis to develop their capabilities and understanding of the complex role of an early childhood teacher.

The programme of study is three years in duration and involves campus-based classes. Students are required to be in a paid or unpaid position in a licensed early childhood centre for a minimum of 12 hours per week.

Each year there is one home centre practicum and one teaching practicum away from the 'home centre' totalling 20 full weeks'
