Course summary

Effective Early Childhood Educators Play a Critical Role in the Development of Children

Good Early Childhood Education Practitioners can have an enormous impact on the education of young children. When successful, they can lay the groundwork for a child’s ongoing education at a critical time when they are learning emotional and social skills that enable them to interact and form partnerships with parents, teachers and peers.

In order to achieve this, effective early childhood educators need to be able to combine a deep understanding of broader educational theory and practice with theoretical and practical experience of education in the early childhood context specifically.

An Online Masters Designed for Education Professionals

This 100% online MA Education with Early Childhood degree from Wrexham Glyndwr University has been created specifically for busy working professionals in early childhood education roles. It enables students to reinforce their practical work experience with the education and early childhood theory, tools and techniques that will help them to achieve career success as a practitioner in early childhood education.

The MA Education with Early Childhood provides professionals who are working within the early years sector with a critical understanding of how educational research, theory, policy and practice intersect with the context of early childhood education in general, and with its specific professional and cultural contexts.
