Students will participate in an in-depth study of Early Childhood Education (ECE). They will have hands on experiences working in our own Preschool Lab and later on at various ECE Centers and schools throughout the community.

ECE students will study learning environments, health and safety, child growth and development, guidance and discipline, social/emotional growth, and cognitive developments, as well as an introduction to theories of learning, which draws from studies of Child Development, Psychology, and Sociology.  Students will also learn about various rewarding career opportunities related to the field of Early Childhood Education.  As a state, we are working with the DOE to create a certification for qualifying students after completing the course.
