Early Childhood Education

Associate in Arts Degree (Day & DAPS)

Traditional or Directors Concentration
 
Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." As a student in the Early Childhood Education Program at Fisher College, you will take the first steps to not only change your world, but also to change the lives and worlds of many children. If you see yourself providing a developmentally appropriate, safe, and loving learning environment for children, then Fisher's Associate in Arts degree in Early Childhood Education is a perfect match for you. Small class sizes allow faculty to work very closely with students and really get to know them individually.

Students in the Early Childhood Education program not only enjoy guest speakers from the field of Early Childhood Education, but also are able to take advantage of all the city of Boston has to offer. Imagine how much fun it will be to take a group of children to The Boston Public Garden to experience Robert McCloskey's book, “Make Way for Ducklings,” first hand. Springtime is the perfect season to bring this tour to life.
