Early Childhood Education

Touching the mind of the young

You have the opportunity to mold and shape a child’s mental, social, and spiritual life during the crucial formative years. Research shows that teachers can enhance young children’s brain development by giving them a sense of security and aiding their ability to handle the stresses of life. Most importantly, your Christian testimony will help you model consistent Christlikeness and communicate truth to young children.

By selecting this program, you’ll learn to teach developmentally appropriate curricula and activities designed to stimulate children’s mental, verbal, physical, and social skills, to encourage parental involvement, and to plant seeds of faith.
