Master in Early Care


Program Description


The Master in Early Care aims to train experts in the early care of the child population, providing you with the necessary tools to detect the possible socio-educational needs of boys and girls. Through continuous training, you will be able to diagnose and intervene in each specific case, allowing the minor to develop their full potential.

Currently, there is a significant demand for professionals who are properly prepared to respond to children from 0 to 6 years of age with special needs related to developmental disorders, whether temporary or permanent. The role of the family as an essential agent in the correct development of the infant is also highlighted, as well as in the neutralization of possible pathologies or potential alterations during this stage.

By studying at ISEB you will receive the advice of experts and tutors who, together with the study methodology, will ensure your professional success.
