    Programme Description

    Since 1977, DIT has been the national leader in the delivery of early childhood education. Demand for quality childcare has been soaring in recent years due to a combination of economic strains on parents to work outside the home, and the desire for parents to give their children the opportunity to grow socially and mentally under the watchful eye of 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 family, community and society. Play is seen as central to young childrens´ development, and theory and practice are combined to encourage a critical, reflective 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. Students must complete the required documentation, including a full list of all previous addresses, in order for clearance checks to be made. Students with previous addresses outside of the Republic of Ireland will be required to provide evidence of vetting by the relevant authority in which the address is located and at their own cost. Currently Irish addresses are vetted by the Garda Vetting Bureau at no cost to the student.
