Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood

"The corner stone of our experience, based on experience, based on practice, theory and research, is the image of the children as rich, strong and powerful.  The emphasis is placed on seeing the children as unique subjects with rights rather than simply needs. They have potential, plasticity, the desire to grow, curiosity, the ability to be amazed, and the desire to relate to other people and to communicate."
Carlina Rinaldi
