Early Childhood: Care and Education (Paraprofessional Educator)
Associate in Applied Science Degree
This program is designed for those who want to work with children from birth-adolescence. Graduates can be expected to fill paraprofessional or professional positions in private or public agencies that provide early care and/or education services. This program exceeds the requirements of the WV Department of Education’s paraprofessional educator’s certificate (available at http://wvde.state.wv.us/policies); therefore individuals with this degree also should be eligible for positions as teacher’s aides in the public school system.
