Why Early Childhood Education?
A child’s experiences in their first 8 years are critically important. Research tells us that high quality early learning and nurturing relationships help prepare children socially, emotionally and academically. It is through a strong foundation in Early Childhood Education that we gain the knowledge and strategies to help children learn and develop to their greatest potential.
Why Bay College?
The Bay College Early Childhood Education Program offers a mix of online only and hybrid courses, making it accessible for students from across the UP. We offer both a 1-year (2 semesters) Certificate in Early Childhood Education and a 2-year (4 semesters) AAS Degree. In addition, we have an articulation agreement with LSSU making it possible for students to seamlessly transition into a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education; taking classes either online or right on Bay’s Main Campus.
