About the Degree
The Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education is designed to meet the competencies required for the Birth through Pre-Kindergarten Teaching Credential which is required by Act 187 passed by the Arkansas Legislature during the 2009 session.  This degree will allow a graduate to apply for the Birth through Pre-Kindergarten Teaching Credential from the Division of Early Care and Education of the Department of Human Services.  It will allow the graduate to be the lead teacher in a non-public school classroom or in a Head Start classroom as they pursue a Bachelor’s degree.  The student will be qualified to serve as a para-professional in a public school pre-kindergarten classroom.  It will not allow the graduate to be the lead teacher in a public school pre-kindergarten classroom.
