The importance of educating young children cannot be overstated in the present and for the future. This is especially true in light of welfare reform. The degree is even more imperative due to federal government regulations requiring that each day care center and each head start program have a director with a bachelor’s degree.
The bachelor of science major in early childhood studies is designed to provide a vehicle for professionals in the field to directly apply their knowledge. The major promotes professionalism in the field and can only improve the development of young children.
