Institute of Early Childhood
The Institute of Early Childhood (IEC) is committed to maximising opportunities for young children, families and communities through research, teaching, learning and advocacy.
We offer internationally recognised undergraduate and postgraduate courses in early childhood. Our graduates are teachers in preschools, primary schools and long day care centres who value integrity, intellectual rigour and social justice. Our postgraduates have placed many of our graduates in leading positions in local and state government departments, as well as leading organisations.
We are home to the Children and Families Research Centre (CRFC), Macquarie University Special Education Centre (MUSEC) and Mia Mia Child and Family Study Centre.
