Childcare and early years education courses

Why choose early years and education at West Notts?

Tutors with industry experience

As an early years and education student you’ll be taught by experienced staff who are happy to share a wealth of practical knowledge with students, ensuring our students are fully-equipped to deal with almost anything!

Get crafty and creative!

Lessons in childcare or education aren’t all work and no play. Students are encouraged to develop creative activities and learning games to support the development of young children within a nursery setting.

Work placements

The best way to study early years and education is in a practical environment. Alongside theory lessons, our students benefit from work placements within childcare and education settings – helping them learn the skills you just won’t get from textbooks.
