The Bachelor of Early Childhood Education Degree (BECE) is intended to provide newly graduated early childhood teachers with the information, abilities, and comprehension necessary to offer young Australian children high-quality early education and care. The goal of the course is to assist students interested in teaching children in developing a thorough awareness of child development, early childhood contexts, educational difficulties, teaching philosophies, and concerns for the various needs of children under the age of five.
Studying this early childhood education programme as an undergraduate or even for your professional development offers a wide range of opportunities. We must continue to provide this course to students interested in training the next generation since there is a persistent scarcity of educated workers in Australia's early childhood industry.
Graduates of the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education program will be well-versed in the theoretical underpinnings and practical competencies necessary for an early childhood educator, with an emphasis on:
• Early childhood education strategies that are agentic and play-based (Broadhead, Howard, and Wood 2010; Fleer 2013).
• utilizing a variety of efficient, modern educational approaches and tactics to organize, deliver, and evaluate efficient learning for a complex and varied spectrum of children and family populations in a society that is constantly evolving.
• establishing a secure and demanding learning environment to promote learning and wellbeing
• important thinkers and theoretical viewpoints in the domains of early childhood studies and education more generally
• exhibiting a thorough understanding of the ethical standards and professional conduct expected of educators
• satisfying the AQF level 7 requirements and ACECQA results.
The Early Childhood Education program is especially appropriate for:
People who want to become early childhood teachers in Australia and who are working toward an undergraduate degree. They should also have experience teaching in early childcare facilities and schools.
