The online Associate of Arts in Early Childhood Education program prepares students for careers in child-care, training individuals on the development of children in terms of their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development. The curriculum uses a broad base of theoretical and practical knowledge with courses and experiences that provide solid academic backgrounds and thorough preparation for careers as child care professionals. Graduates have a sound knowledge of child development, are able to put into practice developmentally appropriate curriculums, can establish and maintain positive collaborative relationships with families, and are ready to meet the needs of each child in a culturally appropriate manner.
This program requires a practicum experience, with placement in the surrounding Boston area.
