Working with infants, toddlers and preschoolers isn’t all fun and games. As an early childhood educator, you need to understand child development so you can create safe environments where young children can learn, explore and grow. Our Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education program gives you lots of valuable hands-on learning opportunities. This program does not lead to elementary (K-8) certification.
Early childhood educators have the opportunity to have a significant impact on children’s lives, using their knowledge and skills to help children explore, learn and interpret the world around them. The early years of a child’s life set the stage, and much of what he or she learns and experiences during this time shapes his or her world in ways that can last a lifetime.
The Baker College Associate of Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education program is a 4-year program consisting of 120 credit hours (90 hours of major courses and 30 hours of general education requirements). Our curriculum includes early childhood development, developing curriculum for early childhood and fieldwork experiences.
The curriculum at Baker absolutely helped me. I had great instructors—instructors who were educators...it was important to me for those instructors to connect with me.
Our mission is to prepare knowledgeable and highly skilled professionals in the field of early childhood education who support human development through partnerships, advocacy, service and the education of all young children and their families.
