Overview

The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood) is designed with a new type of early childhood professional in mind – one who operates in a multi-disciplinary field involving care, education and health.

The course focuses on learning and teaching for children aged birth-eight years, and provides a qualification for registration to teach in early childhood settings.

Extra support

Our teacher candidates are successful because of the extra support and guidance they get when leading a class for the first time.

You will receive ongoing support – unlike any other university – both on campus and while on placement. As you learn, you will be supported by a Mentor Teacher, a Teaching Fellow and a Clinical Specialist.
