Early Childhood Education is the study of young children from birth to eight years old – how they develop physically, how they learn successfully or fail, the adoption of appropriate strategies that would assist them to reach their potential, and how they develop holistically. It is best done through an academic and professional ECE program.

Young and developing children require educators who are able to provide appropriate care and education for them. The significance of having qualified and trained ECE educators is now accepted by young parents, policy makers and society at large. It is therefore timely that those who care for and teach the young, and those who aspire to be ECE professionals, can now pursue the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (Hons) at HELP University.
