Become the kind of exceptional teacher that children deserve

All children are sponges when it comes to learning, but children from birth to 3rd grade are especially so. They soak everything up, everything you put in front of them is something they learn from. What an honor, what a responsibility!

Program Overview

As an early childhood educator, you will have the opportunity to have an incredible impact on the way children will learn as they grow up. You’ll learn how to plan curriculum, instruction, and activities for young children, and how to use music, art, movement, and dramatic play to encourage creative expression and learning. You’ll learn how to perform formal and informal assessments of young children, including observation, analysis, reporting, and application of results. 

What to Expect

With your degree in Early Childhood Education, you’ll be able to teach in early childhood settings, like Head Start, Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP), and other government-funded programs. Beyond these obviously useful qualifications and certifications, you will be equipped with the skills that are necessary to effectively manage classroom and design and assess curriculum. With the Christian component to the education you receive, the influence you have on the children you teach will expand beyond mathematics and grammar; it will reveal to them the love of Jesus and inspire them to grow in their faith as well.
