​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Department of Childhood Education

The Department of Childhood Education (DCE) and the Centre for Education Research Practice (CEPR) together form a University of Johannesburg flagship.

In addition to the class work, the undergraduate programme is extended by a practicum component where students spend time in a primary school that is associated with the university. The CEPR, under the leadership of Prof E Henning, is the research ‘leg’ of childhood education and houses the majority of the research projects in the Department.
