Our early childhood education course is ideal for teachers who aspire to meet the needs of contemporary early childhood services.

You'll gain skills in research methods, professional practice, project management, and professional communication. You will also be required to register with the Victorian Institute of Teaching as an early childhood teacher after graduation, which will enable you to teach across a range of early childhood settings.
