Are you eager to study the learning and development of children from birth through age eight?
Students will develop skills in the field of early childhood education, which will enable them to work in preschool, special education, child care, psychology, social work, and family life studies. Training will include working in the Early Education Tot Spot Preschool Lab along with community and public school-based educational settings.
“Attending the BACC Early Education program provided experience and knowledge that was fundamental to my success at Eastern Michigan University. I was able to be a part of multiple classrooms and practice all of the skills that I use now! Coming into my field of study I already had two years of experience, this helped me keep up with course work, and eased the stress of new job placements! In my time at the BACC I earned: CDA (Child Development Associate Credential), Work Keys Certificate, 3.0 credit hours from dual enrolment at KCC, 2 scholarships, and passing scores on the MTTC Pre. As of 2016 I have been inducted into The International Honors Society of Educators, Kappa Delta Pi. I truly believe that this, along with my success at EMU, would not have been possible without the opportunities given to me by the BACC!”

“This class helped me determine what I wanted to do in my future. With taking the Early Education class, I got ahead in so many aspects. I earned college credits, obtained my Child Development Associate credential, and it let me experience what it was like to actually teach.”
