Early Childhood Education

Learn. Educate. Change.

The field of early childhood education includes careers working with families and children from birth to eight years of age. Child care workers typically work in child care centers, as nannies and or family childcare providers. Preschool teachers, early educators, and early childhood program administrators typically work in educational settings and Head Start programs with the goal of providing quality early education to build a solid foundation.

To succeed in an early childhood education career, candidates need more than a degree. Close interaction with children demands patience and a strong, sincere desire to help all children learn and reach their fullest potential.
