1 Year Course

Upgrading the competences of the preschool teacher to academic level
In this course it is possible to study on a much deeper level all subjects concerning the development of young children in relation with how this affects the way they have to be taught.There is a strong integration of theory and practice: lessons learnt in the classrooms are practised in the field and the experience leads to exploring new areas of knowledge.
Throughout the course close individual supervision and support of a mentor is provided.

Special attention is paid to create a ‘lifelong learning attitude’, to be able to maintain professional quality after the course.
