Early Childhood Education

If you want to work with children, Early Childhood Education would be an excellent program for you. Learn about child growth and development, the physical needs of children, how to guide children and how to communicate with children and their parents. Take your classroom lessons into facilities that serve children and put theory into practice under the supervision of qualified teachers.
