Learn to teach young minds.

If you’re interested in a career teaching young children, the Young Child Education program at Northwest Technical College will prepare you for a variety of opportunities. You’ll learn how to provide a safe, healthy, developmentally and culturally appropriate educational environment for children from birth through age 8.

This 60-credit Associate of Science (AS) degree prepares graduates to transfer to a four-year university for a non-teaching degree in early childhood or an education degree in early childhood, which is required for licensure to teach from birth through third grade.
