Adele P. Glenn Academy for Early Childhood Education

Early Childhood Education

The growing field of early childhood education includes many different job opportunities. Regardless of the position sought, persons considering a degree in early childhood education should enjoy working with children and have a strong desire to help them learn and succeed.
As an early childhood education major, you might enjoy a variety of career options after you graduate, including a child care teacher, an assistant director or director of a child care facility, a private preschool teacher, nanny, director of a preschool program, an elementary school assistant, or Head Start assistant. Professionals may work with children of different age groups, depending on their specialty; the age range covered usually goes from birth to age 8 or so (third grade). An early childhood education major enjoys the opportunity for employment in a field that dramatically shapes and influences the lives of children.

Many of Richland's Early Childhood Education Classes will transfer to the Millikin University Early Childhood Education program: ECE 101, 110, 113 290. and ED 220
