Children are our future so there is no higher calling than opening young minds to learning. At Bryant & Stratton College we offer you the opportunity to earn online education degrees that make it easy for you to follow this important career path. Our online degrees in Early Childhood Education (ECE) prepare students to lead young children in educational activities designed to develop their minds and bodies during their most formative years.
For a firm foundation in early childhood education theory as well as childhood theory, choose our online ECE associate degree program. This program includes courses in curriculum planning, methods for assessing progress and ways to guide the behavior of young children. It also gives instruction in how to include families in the learning process for maximum success. To jumpstart your entry into the classroom, our online education diploma program can be completed in less than two years.
Both the associate and diploma degrees meet the 120-hour requirement for the Council for Professional Recognition's National Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential. This is the most widely recognized credential in Early Childhood Education. All our online education degree programs also follow the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
