I loved the experiences and learning environment of Greenwich Uni, it really helped me grow as a person. All my tutors and lecturers are amazing at their job! They guided me in the right direction and were there for me whether I needed academic or personal support.

Investment in a child’s earliest years has a significant influence on their future success.

While studying our early years degree, you will learn to be a visionary leader and agent for change under the expert tuition of our dedicated teaching staff. You will reflect on the common core values of the early years workforce, review practice and policy and learn the importance of encouraging a child’s development in partnership with their family. This encompasses all physical, intellectual, social and emotional development as well as children’s rights, equality and inclusion.

An integral part of the programme is a twice-weekly early years work placement which will help you form links with potential future employers for an early years career.

For those interested in social policy, there will be the opportunity to visit Denmark where you will learn about the inspiring Danish early years environment. You will also take trips to forest schools and outdoor learning centres to discover alternative teaching methods.
