According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), “The demand for early childhood care and education programs continues to increase, not only in response to the growing demand for out-of-home child care but also in recognition of the critical importance of educational experiences during the early years.” This bachelor’s degree program in early childhood education prepares professionals who can provide high-quality educational experiences for their community’s youngest children.

Graduates will be able to facilitate positive transitions of children with disabilities and special needs, to nurture early language development and early reading and writing and other growth in other domains, to build early resiliency and self-regulation, and to develop as early childhood stakeholder leaders.

Graduates of this major pursue careers such as:
  • Head Start Teacher
  • Preschool Teacher
  • Infant/Toddler Specialist
  • Family Child Care Provider
  • Program Administrator in an early childhood setting

This degree does not lead to Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 5 licensure.
