Childhood and Education

We are well known on the international stage for being the first institution to run the Early Childhood Studies degree programme in the UK, and for hosting the biennial International Children and Childhood Conference. As experienced as we are passionate, we draw on our own research to support your learning and help you to explore your passions and interests.

Our values are founded on the principle that education is for everyone. Education is a right, and has the potential to transform lives. We believe that children, young people and adults all deserve the right to a high-quality education as a foundation for a more secure future. We are committed to developing knowledge and skills that are transferable and necessary to succeed in a changing world.
