The Bachelor in Early Childhood Education program is designed to offer professional growth opportunities to aspiring preschool educators, granting them a degree qualification. Specifically, the program aims to equip students with the requisite knowledge, skills, and competencies for roles in industries catering to children, such as preschools, Child Care & development centers, children enrichment centers, children play centers, theme parks, among others.

At UNITAR, in addition to traditional classroom or online learning, students engage in hands-on activities in the simulation room, providing authentic experiences in early childhood education. Through this curriculum, students undergo assessment via value-based projects involving fieldwork, either individually or in groups, to provide real-world exposure to the early childhood education sector, alongside final examinations.

The program boasts strong industry partnerships and project collaborations, ensuring students are well-prepared for the demands of the early childhood education (ECE) industry. Additionally, a specialized course on Special Needs, powered by Toddler Town, enhances students' skills and knowledge in addressing the needs of children with learning disabilities.

Endorsed by MOHE/MQA, this program (R2/143/6/0214) 04/29 (MQA/FA 1746) aligns with rigorous educational standards.
