Although child care facilities provide the elementary foundation for a successful educational career, the learning conditions at these facilities can still be improved. The path to improvement begins with the training of kindergarten teachers. The part-time bachelor's program is the first university degree program in Austria for trained kindergarten teachers with professional and management experience. The degree program focuses on how you can develop educational partnerships with families, team leadership and cooperation with education partners and how to optimally organize your facility.

What we offer you

We maintain close cooperation with elementary educational institutions, elementary educational training centers and universities with which we regularly exchange knowledge and experience. The bachelor's degree program was developed in collaboration with experts from the Universities of Vienna and Innsbruck, the Bundesbildungsanstalt für Kindergartenpädagogik Klagenfurt, employees of course-providing bodies, the early education and care platform EduCare and other experts from the field of early education and care and its related disciplines. The first conference for directors and responsible bodies for children's education and child care facilities in Austria took place at FH Campus Wien. Currently there are very few university professorships for early education and care in Austria The head of our degree program is herself a university qualified teacher. Nina Hover-Reisner most recently taught and researched topics in early education and care at the Department of Education at the University of Vienna. Before that, she worked for many years in early education and care institutions. Thus she combines to a high degree scientific expertise with practical experience.

What makes this degree program special

Although child care facilities provide the elementary foundation for a successful educational career, the learning conditions at these facilities can still be improved. The path to improvement begins with the training of kindergarten teachers. In the vast majority of European countries a university education is the norm. Only in Austria is this not the case. At a time in which the growing need for quality child care facilities is being discussed and at the same time too few people want to work in early education and care, it is more important than ever to promote the development of the profession into an academic field.

FH Campus Wien is the first university to offer a degree program for trained kindergarten teachers with professional and management experience. The degree program focuses not only on the education of the children according to established theories, but on how you can develop educational partnerships with families, team leadership and cooperation with education partners and how to optimally organize your facility.
