Programme Aims and Features
The BEd (ECE&SE) Programme qualifies graduates to nurture and teach children from birth to six years in diverse early childhood settings (e.g., kindergartens, child care centres and special child care centres).

The programme fully integrates early childhood education with inclusive education hence students will be prepared to recognise children’s diverse needs and effectively support children with both typical and atypical development.

(iii) be considered as having acquired training on the one-year In-service Course in Special Child Care Work recognized by the Social Welfare Department;
