The online Associate of Arts in Early Childhood program is designed to provide the first two years of college preparation for students wanting to be certified as early childhood teachers for PreK-2, who plan to become instructional aides, and/or are preparing for other early childhood careers. The curriculum teaches students to apply the dimensions of multicultural education to support appropriate pedagogical practices for teaching diverse students in Early Childhood Education, to select technology tools for integration across the Early Childhood Education curriculum, and to synthesize the major theoretical perspectives and methods of educational psychology to teaching, learning, and schooling in Early Childhood Education. Students also learn to choose formative and summative techniques for evaluation and modification with group and individual instruction and learning strategies for Early Childhood Education.
