Why Study Early Childhood Education?

Providing high-quality early learning and development  experiences are critically important to create the foundation for  children's physical/social/emotional well- being and intellectual growth.  Working with children, from birth to age 8, provides an opportunity to not only encourage and support young children's learning, but also to ensure the future of our communities.  The careers available with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education offer many opportunities that are rewarding.
