Mission and Program Learning Outcomes

The mission of the Early Childhood A.S. degree program is to provide students interested in careers working with young children with a high quality background of theoretical knowledge, skills training, developmentally appropriate practice, professional ethics, and practical experience. To that end, program faculty focus their efforts on delivering a rigorous academic and pedagogical curriculum that prepares students to successfully (1) seek and obtain employment in an early childhood setting directly upon graduation and (2) attain New York State Teacher Assistant Certification.
