Early Childhood Education

Allen's associate degrees in early childhood education prepare students for successful careers working with young children by providing foundational learning in education and development. An early childhood education degree opens the doors to many exciting careers in childcare. Becoming a preschool teacher, a family childcare provider, a Head Start teacher, or a center director are all possibilities.

The degree track is a sequence of recommended early childhood and general education courses designed to meet most degree requirements for the first two years of study for early childhood education at Kansas Board of Regents universities, so that students may transfer into the university at the junior level.  Graduation with this degree helps to assure that successful transition.
