Early Childhood Education

Students enter the profession assuming responsibility for the care and education of an individual group of young children in various settings such as child care centers, preschools, nonpublic kindergartens, before-and/or after-school child care programs, or family day care homes.
All Early Childhood Education degrees and certificates have online options.
