Early Childhood A.A.S.
The Early Childhood program is designed to prepare students for careers in a variety of settings working with children birth to age eight. Knowledge of children through observation, description, and reflection as well as current research in the field is the basis for coming to a deeper understanding of the values that underlie students’ work with children. Students are supported in translating theory into practice through supervised internships alongside class seminars.
