Early Childhood Education


Help children reach their potential with one of our Early Childhood Education programmes.

If you love kids, you’ll love our Early Childhood Education (ECE) courses. Teaching at any level is rewarding, but early childhood teachers have a special opportunity to help children in their earliest stages of life. 

You’ll graduate with valuable core skills for the education and care of infants and young children - including having an understanding of Te Whariki, the NZ curriculum. 

What’s more, the practical, hands-on experience you’ll gain from work experience in an Early Childhood Education setting will help you move towards a job in a childcare centre.

There is an ongoing demand for Early childhood teachers which is expected to remain strong. So if you have a passion for working with children, enjoy being part of a team and want to make a positive difference in the lives of others, then this may be the right profession for you.
