Give children a great start in life with a bachelor's in early childhood education.

Working with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers isn’t all fun and games. As an early childhood educator, you need to have an understanding of child development so you can create safe environments where young children can learn, explore, and grow.

Our bachelor’s degree in early childhood education program combines classroom learning and fieldwork, giving you lots of valuable hands-on learning opportunities. You’ll get real-world experience doing everything from planning age-appropriate play centers to developing curricula that helps very young children develop basic skills and learn about the world around them.

After completing this program, you’ll be ready to find work in supervisory and administrative positions, such as preschool teacher, home visitor, curriculum developer, or child/family advocate. 

This program does not lead to elementary (K-8) certification.
