Montgomery College’s Board of Trustees Approves Development of Fully Online Early Childhood Education Technology Degree
The Online Program Awards an Associate of Applied Science Degree
The Montgomery College Board of Trustees last week approved the development of the Early Childhood Education Technology Associate of Applied Science (AAS) program to be offered online.
The development of a fully online Early Childhood Education Technology AAS program seeks to meet the dynamic challenges facing MC students and community. Family caregivers and full-time workers will be able to balance their responsibilities while earning their degrees in a friendly, online format. The goal is for time and costs to degree completion to decrease while increasing graduation and transfer rates.
“The Montgomery College Early Childhood Program is proud to support all early childhood educators with a pathway that provides access to all in completing an early childhood associate of applied science degree,” said Sonia Pruneda-Hernandez, early childhood education program coordinator at the College. “With highly qualified early childhood faculty who embed virtual meetings and advising, students receive the necessary guidance to be successful in their online classes.”
This online program will follow the same curriculum and will be taught by the same faculty who teach on-site. The program prepares students to work with individuals from infancy through age eight in a variety of early childhood settings.
The development of online courses to support the Early Childhood Education A.A.S. degree and certificate programs is currently being supported with funds from the Carl D. Perkins Grant.
