Studying Early Childhood Education and Care at Newman University

  • Providing children with good-quality education and care in their earliest years can help them succeed at school and later in life. The Early Childhood Education and Care course at Newman is designed to give you the skills to make a difference to the lives of young children.

  • The last decade has seen the wider development of early years provision, changes and challenges in education and care, and the recognition that early childhood and children’s experiences must be supported by a highly qualified workforce. Government legislation, policy and research have raised the profile of early childhood, education and care and established the requirement for recognised professional qualifications for all those working in the field of early years in public, voluntary and private sectors. ECEC graduates from Newman contribute to that workforce.

  • This degree is registered with the DfE as having ‘full and relevant status’, which is particularly advantageous to graduates employed in early years settings, in counting towards the staff:child ratios at level 3.

  • For a comprehensive and up-to-date list of modules for Years 1, 2, and 3 of the course, please visit the Early Childhood Education and Care page of the Newman University website.
