Early childhood education is a growing field, as more parents, schools and governmental bodies recognize the importance of an early start for children’s intellectual and social development. Rewarding careers in teaching await those who attain a degree in early childhood education. Research shows that the early years are the most important, and the educators who teach in daycares, preschools, Head Start programs and elsewhere are a valuable piece of the educational system.

By learning about child development, teaching methods, creative play, and other topics, students in early childhood education programs are prepared to work with children in a hands-on learning environment. The on-campus Early Childhood Education Center offers a laboratory experience for students to apply their emerging skills in a challenging environment.
