The Froebel Department of Primary and Early Childhood Education at Maynooth University offer two degrees in early childhood teaching and learning, one full-time and one flexible.

The full-time BA in Early Childhood Teaching and Learning (MH003) caters for those aspiring to enter the Early Childhood Education and Care sector from Leaving Certificate, further education or mature student paths.

The flexible BA in Early Childhood Teaching and Learning (MH004), has been developed in response to the sector’s demand for flexible progression routes to degree level and as a consequence of relevant policy changes at national level. This caters for educators working in the early childhood sector. Educators with full Level 6 qualification in Early Childhood can progress to year 2 through advanced entry.
