Introduction

The focus of the degree is understanding child development, strengthening observation abilities, and developing skills working with young children. In addition, this program will familiarize students with resources for continuing professional growth, and provide opportunities to discuss best practices with others in the field.

The department believes that children build their understanding of the world by interacting with objects and activities, with adults and with other children. We also believe that adults learn best by interacting with other adults in discussion, experimentation, and reflection. Students are asked to stretch their thinking and share their experiences with other students in the program.

Students who want to increase their understanding and excitement about working with young children, meet municipality child care licensing requirements, or complete a degree are encouraged to speak with any Early Childhood faculty member.
