Bachelor of Early Childhood

University of Southern Queensland (USQ)

This program equips students with the skills and knowledge required to give a child the best possible start in life. Emphasis is placed on child-centred learning and positions graduates to work with expertise in child care and kindergarten centres. Targeted professional experience placements give students extensive experience in these settings. Unique additional engagement activities run throughout the degree, give students the opportunity to engage and network with current educators and industry specialists and develop valuable teaching skills, an advantage when it comes to applying for jobs. Graduates of the Bachelor of Early Childhood will have the skills, knowledge and experience required to work in a range of prior to school learning environments, including early education and care centres and family day care programs as a director, educator, supervisor or as a group leader. This program is accredited with the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
