Welcome to the Department of Early Childhood Education

Young children who receive the right preparation during early childhood are equipped with the expertise that is needed to develop early literacy and reading skills, and early numeracy and basic life skills. The Department of Early Childhood Education (ECE) at the University of Pretoria trains educators in this challenging field from undergraduate up to doctoral level.

Prospective students are encouraged to take a look at the academic programmes on offer; contact us or read more about what the Department has to offer.
