You will need to complete a bachelor degree in early childhood education if you do ultimately want to become an ECT. ECT's teach preschoolers (before formal schooling begins).

If you want to become a Kindergarten Teacher in a primary school, you can still do a bachelor of early childhood education (0-8 years) and this will enable you to work with children in primary school up-to 8 years old.
