Early Childhood Education

You will have the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to organize and maintain a safe and stimulating learning environment that ensures the total development of the child.

You will examine how children grow and build a foundation of understanding that children learn through play. This learning approach combined with a culturally-relevant environment will reflect that children are curious, capable, and competent.
