Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Education Transfer Track provides students with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to create environments that will maximize the developmental and learning potential of all young children (birth to age 8) using developmentally appropriate practices as a foundation for program planning. Issues of diversity, inclusion, and professionalism are intricately woven throughout the coursework.

Students will gain experience and knowledge through hands-on participation in early education settings. Work with FVCC academic advisors to customize your degree so you're prepared to transfer and study Early Childhood Education.

In two years, earn an associate degree, complete lower-level general education requirements, and prepare to transfer to any four-year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree.


Transfer tracks are customized programs of study that prepare students to transfer. You will earn an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Science (AS) degree customized to your interests and transfer needs.
