Course Rationale

Early Childhood Education is the beginning of children's education as it lays the foundation for key learning areas such as literacy, numeracy and personal and emotional development. Children today live in an ICT-integrated society and are heavily exposed to new developments in the early years of their lives. For this reason, it is vital that early childhood educators lay the foundations for the effective learning of ICT in such a way that it will continue to build progressively throughout their lifelong learning experiences.
