There are opportunities to develop knowledge of the practice and theory of early years education and care, giving students a full and rounded understanding of the subject. As well as academic content, students will undertake learning activities that explore the practical aspects of early years provision through hands-on learning, making links between theory and practice. Learning takes place through group discussions, workshops, study visits as well as lectures in order to develop a knowledge and understanding of a range of relevant topics.
