Early Childhood

Open University in Scotland

Content

If you currently work with children from birth to seven years, or are looking to learn more about young children’s lives and experiences, this degree could be of interest to you. You’ll investigate early childhood from national and international perspectives with a focus on the central importance of children’s voices and the participatory nature of young children’s experiences. You’ll also gain an understanding of early childhood in diverse social, cultural and multi-disciplinary contexts.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements to study this qualification. Computer and internet access necessary.

You do not need to be working with young children in order to study this qualification; however in both compulsory modules you will need direct experience with young children (birth to 7 years, 11 months). Students not working with young children (employed or in a voluntary capacity) will need to negotiate opportunities to gain such practical experience.
