About the Program

A certificate in Early Childhood Education will help you obtain employment working with children 0-8 in child care, preschool, schools, social work, and healthcare offices. Our ECE Program is infused with early childhood best practices from the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Build your resources from many of our textbooks that come from NAEYC Advisory Board support.

BMCC ECE is an online program, so even the working student can work toward their educational goals. The staff has a vast amount of experience to help educate you about their specific fields in early childhood.
