“Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation” - C Everett Koop
The child development course at The King’s helps to prepare students so that they become knowledgeable and considerate adults who have the ability, both in the world of work and in their personal lives, to nurture babies and toddlers through their first steps of life.
With the emphasis on a child’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social development, students will develop a deep appreciation for how we develop through the most important years of our life. Through the detailed study of children, students will be given the opportunity to embed their learnt knowledge and skills by completing placements at local early years providers. Here, their passion and love for children will continue to blossom as they witness, and play an instrumental role in, a child’s development.
Sharing our passion for this subject helps to instill an appetite for all child development related matters with the aim of inspiring future early years’ practitioners.
