Coloring inside the lines isn’t just about creating art. Play is an essential part of learning. Studying the early childhood field allows you to bring together families, professionals, programs, and agencies that influence every aspect of children’s lives from prenatal development through age 8.

Throughout the program, professional educators analyze topics including child development, family partnerships, content knowledge, and leadership. Education professionals examine the quality of early childhood programs and policies, research and present strategies to promote positive outcomes for young children, and evaluate the leadership characteristics necessary to be an advocate in the field.
