Early Childhood Education at Mary Immaculate College
Want to study abroad to be a teacher or educarer? Mary Immaculate College are serious about Pedagogy! Christine Burnell, our US Ambasasador, shares her experience…
How can we learn to best teach young children? Leave that to the Early Childhood Care and Education Programme at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick!
Many people hear Early Childhood Education and think it’s ‘just a bunch of fun and games’ (which it certainly does involve) and are not aware of how convoluted the subject matter actually is, but Mary Immaculate’s ECCE programme challenges those stigmas.
The lecturers take the subject seriously, expect the same from the students and are here to give you the best education and experience working with young children.
“My degree in Ireland will open doors to managerial, co-ordinators, director and facilitator positions in a number of Early Years settings.”
Every semester students in the course are placed in a classroom setting to apply practice to theory working with children aged 0-6 years old. During this time we build a professional portfolio that documents our work and progress over the duration of the 4 years in the course.
The course also involves a diverse selection of modules that include Child Development, Educational Psychology, Curriculum Guidelines as well Sociological and Global Perspectives. Recently, second year students engaged in Creativity and Visual Arts modules as well as Physical Education to learn skills we can use in our profession. We even have fashionable matching track suits!
Since moving to Ireland I’ve been able to learn so much about the Irish Education system and policies not just because of the fact that I am attending college here but because it is such an important part of my course. I plan on finishing my BA in ECCE at Mary Immaculate and look forward to the opportunities it will provide me. My degree will open doors to managerial, co-ordinators, director and facilitator positions in a number of Early Years settings.
If you’re looking for a college abroad that specialises in Education Majors, Mary Immaculate College in Limerick City is the one for you!
