The Early Childhood Education program prepares students for entry-level careers in child care and early education (PK-grade 3). Students will learn about the emotional, intellectual, physical, and social development of children. Those who work with this age group typically teach their students introductory concepts in language, math, science, social studies, and more. Early Childhood Education students participate in externship experiences (hands-on training) with toddlers, preschool, and early elementary grades.
