About

The Early Childhood Studies programme from the University of Roehampton is committed to babies and young children as people with agency and unique capacities, and to their overall wellbeing from the prenatal period. Students become part of the early childhood research centre with its internationally highly respected research team.

Overview

The Early Childhood Studies programme from the University of Roehampton draws on Froebel’s understanding of the transformative power of young children’s play on their thinking, and the crucial way that adults can either seek to assist or control young children’s intrinsic creativity. In adults’ interactions with children, however, Froebel recognised the profound influence of the community and social context. 

The syllabus is underpinned by an awareness of the influence of these social, cultural and political contexts on young children’s lives, and of the roots and structures of inequality that arise from these issues. The programme will strengthen your awareness and understanding of these influences and explore how you take account of them in action. In these respects, the programme also draws inspiration from the work of Paulo Freire, the radical and pioneering educator.
