BA in Education (with certification): Early Childhood Education

Early childhood education is key to keeping our country competitive, and is part of our government's plan for the future. If you like working with young children and enjoy sharing knowledge that lights up their eyes with wonder, then Webster University's degree with certification in Early Childhood Education is for you.

The School of Education at Webster University provides you with the knowledge, experiences and practical tools that will help guide you and the children you teach toward life-long learning. Play that encourages learning is a considerable part of the process.

A degree from Webster University opens the door to many employment options. As the need for younger teachers increases as many older teachers retire, growth is expected in the early childhood education field.
