Early Years

We have a thriving Early Years department. We offer one course in this department which is full time – this is because a key component of the course involves work placement where you will be in a range of settings, using the theory you have explore in the classroom in a real-life context! We offer a range of enrichment opportunities too, and you will be learning from staff who all have experience of working in the field.



Studying Children’s Play, Learning and Development at HNC is a really immersive experience because you’re working with children from the start of your course. This really helped me to really understand working within an early years setting and I feel prepared for my future career. The teachers were fantastic- really knowledgeable and supportive, and the Early Years hub provided a specialist area where I could concentrate on my studies and work with my peers on group projects.
