The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Early Childhood Management degree will prepare students for careers working with young children in public/private child development centers and family home child care centers. From child growth and development and early childhood education to program development, you will get a well-rounded education in developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive practices that help to shape a child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
Students can choose to focus on education or management. This degree will prepare students to teach children under the age of five or to direct operations at a child care facility. If students completed child care assisting and child care supervision programs in the Duval County School District after June 1, 1993 or the First Coast Technical Institute in the fall of 1992 or later, they may be eligible for some transfer credits. Credits from your degree can be used toward our Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Early Childhood Education or for transfer to another Florida state college or university as well as many private institutions.
