M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education

Early education is the critical first step in a child’s journey — physically, emotionally, and mentally. Sure, ABCs and 1-2-3s may seem simple. But as an effective educator, you can engage young children in learning experiences backed by research and developmental theory. You can set standards influenced by development stages and even go beyond the classroom to learn to build relationships between the school and family.
