Early Childhood Education
Educate, Inspire, Communicate, Connect, Discover
The DMACC Early Childhood Education program prepares students for careers working with young children in a variety of settings. At DMACC, you may earn a certificate, a diploma and an associate degree in Early Childhood Education.
Students completing the Early Childhood Education Associate in Applied Science degree may take one of the many jobs available in early childhood education working with infants and toddlers, preschoolers or school-age children, such as lead, assistant or associate teaching in child care centers, preschools, child development homes and public and private schools, home visiting or program coordination and management in early childhood programs. Students who intend to teach in a Pre-K through third-grade setting will need to transfer to a teacher licensure institution and should contact the Early Childhood Education program chair or program advisor regarding transfer agreements with four-year institutions.
