Early Childhood Education

Brevard’s Early Childhood Education Program will acquaint you with developmentally appropriate practices for early childhood learning. The Early Childhood Education track of the Integrated Studies Major prepares you for the care and education of an increasingly assorted population of children.

You'll get to participate in class activities and field experiences to develop a more in-depth understanding of the role of the Early Childhood Educator. Brevard students also graduate prepared to accomplish their professional goals by taking part in guided classroom observation and applied activities that help you develop a professional teaching portfolio.
