Master of Teaching (Early Childhood Education)

Applications for the 2015 intake are now closed. The next intake of students for the MTeach program will be in March 2016.

Applicants for the graduate-entry degree in early-childhood teaching must have an initial relevant undergraduate qualification. The English-language requirements for the MTeach (Early Childhood) are the same as for all other graduate-entry-teaching designations offered by the faculty.

Course overview

This course leads to a qualification as a teacher of children aged birth to five years, in pre-primary childcare and early-childhood-education settings.

The curriculum integrates training for general- and special-early-childhood education of infants, toddlers and preschool children so that students are prepared for teaching in diverse and inclusive early-childhood environments, including schools and other community settings.

Graduates are equipped with the necessary knowledge and training to become outstanding early-childhood teachers, decision-makers, ethical leaders, and theoretical and practical thinkers.

Professional experiences

The early childhood course strives to provide students with well-designed professional experiences – incorporating observation, participation and supervised teaching – in a variety of settings, under the guidance of experienced, qualified professionals.
