Walden University offers an online educational leadership degree, the Master of Science in Early Childhood Studies with a concentration in Administration, Management & Leadership. This online early childhood education degree is designed for individuals interested in starting or managing child-care centers or development programs and also want to complete the program at their own pace through Tempo Learning. Courses provide the knowledge and skills needed to create child-centered programs promoting positive learning experiences for all children. Students learn how to plan and manage budgets and how to recruit, evaluate, and motivate qualified staff. They also study regulatory compliance to ensure child safety.
The Tempo Learning method is a competency-based and self-paced option for working professionals. Student progress is measured by the mastery or demonstration of skills, abilities, and knowledge in a particular area of study. This is priced as an all-you-can-learn model, where students subscribe to 3-month learning periods instead of paying for courses or credit hours.
