Early Childhood Education (Pre K-3)

The Associate of Science in Teaching Degree in Early Childhood Education (Pre K-3) is an education specialty designed to prepare individuals to work with children from Pre-K through 3rd grade. Early Childhood Education is a two-year program designed for students planning to continue their studies toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university.

An associate’s degree could lead to work as a teacher’s assistant, Head Start teacher or work as a preschool teacher in a day care setting.

A bachelor’s degree could lead to a teacher certification in Pre-K through 3rd grade where you would be able to teach in a public or private school.
