Associate of Applied Sciences in Early Childhood Education
Graduates with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Early Childhood Education are early childhood educators who can work with, and meet the needs of, families and children from infant-toddlers through primary children in child-care settings. They may serve as child-care administrators, head teachers in day care and Head Start programs, family child-care providers, and family advocates and parent educators in community service agencies.
They also meet the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation, which require that paraprofessionals in public schools have a minimum of two years of college. Graduates will be eligible for licensure in the State of Ohio as an Educational Paraprofessional Associate.
