Diploma in Early Childhood Education

by | May 30, 2019

The programme is aimed at preparing learners to meet the demands and challenges of the teaching profession at nursery and pre-school levels for both public and private centres. It is structured to enable graduates to acquire competencies in identifying the teaching and learning approaches for young children, and to be reflectively and professionally engaged in teaching-learning processes and experiences, curriculum planning, and aspects of management.

Adult learners study mostly online and only need to attend intensive revisions at their nearest authorized SEGi location once a month via our Blended Learning Approach specially customized to your needs. Study at your own pace and from anywhere, anytime, maintaining your work-life balance. Obtain a full SEGi University qualification similar to those who study full time. You will also get to meet and network with childcare providers and teachers to share experience and establish contacts.
