Early Childhood Education and Care

At University Centre Somerset, we firmly believe that working with children is an incredibly rewarding career choice. Not only is it incredibly fulfilling, it also opens doors to a thriving and expanding industry. With influential campaigns highlighting the significance of Early Childhood Education and Care, championed by the Princess of Wales, and increased investments in the sector through the UK budget, the field is ripe with opportunities.

Based at Taunton campus, our courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to excel in the world of children's play, learning, and development. Whether you're interested in pre-school provision, social care, or youth work, our programmes set out to prepare you for a successful and impactful career. Learn more about the roles that you could progress into here.

Led by experienced professionals who remain at the forefront of research and practice in their field, our degrees ensure that students receive the most current and relevant education, empowering them to thrive in the ever-evolving landscape of early childhood education and care.
