Research and innovation that creates positive change in children’s lives

Norland’s vision is to become a centre of excellence in early years research and innovation. Our facilities, together with our lecturers’ passion for their subject, inspire a culture of innovative thinking amongst both students and staff.

We are committed to high quality research in early years education that will advance current thinking, inform our teaching and inspire our students to develop to their full potential. In so doing, we aim to create positive change in children’s lives and therefore in society as a whole.
