DT572 Programme Description Demand for quality childcare has soared in recent years due to both parents working outside the home and the desire for parents to give their children the opportunity to grow socially and cognitively under the care of trained professionals. In line with these increasing demands this degree programme has been designed for those who wish to pursue a career in Early Childhood Education. Graduates of the programme possess an understanding of the holistic development of the child based on sound knowledge of current relevant theory. Throughout the programme the whole child is the focus of study and the child is studied in the context of the family, community and society. Play is seen as central to young children‚Äôs development and theory and practice are combined to encourage the development of a critical, refl ective practitioner. It is a requirement of the placement providers that all students on this programme must undergo Garda vetting procedures before being allowed to register.

Currently Irish addresses are vetted by the Garda Vetting Unit at no cost to the student.
