The Most Important Years of Life

The more we learn about child development, the more we realize the crucial importance of early childhood education to prepare children for lifelong success. With a bachelor’s degree in Child Study and an associate degree in Early Childhood Education from Goodwin College, you can make a difference in the lives of children.

Parents, families, and communities need devoted, nurturing — and knowledgeable — professionals who are invested in children’s growth. Early childhood educators focus on nurturing children’s skills in all areas including language and literacy, social and emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

In our early childhood education degree programs, you will gain knowledge of how to work with children and their families in a variety of settings based on child development and age-appropriate practices. You will gain a deep knowledge of child growth, development, and learning, and will be able to apply this knowledge to communicating effectively with children, colleagues, and families.

Graduates of our Child Study and Early Childhood Education programs can obtain their Connecticut Early Childhood Teacher Credential (ECTC). Goodwin College has been approved by the Office of Early Childhood for both the Infant/Toddler and Preschool levels.
