Early Childhood Education Associate Degrees Online

Accredited colleges and universities offering college education in early childhood education.

An Associate’s degree in early childhood education generally takes two years to complete, after which you will have a strong understanding of the developmental processes and educational needs of children from infancy through toddlerhood.

While a Bachelor’s degree is generally required to teach in public school at the kindergarten level, an Associate’s degree gives you a lot of options—including in public schools as a preschool teacher. You can also work as a teacher’s aide, or serve as Lead Teacher at an independent preschool or day care center.

With an Associate's, more doors are open to you than before.
