Early Childhood Education Program & Center
Early childhood education is not babysitting. It is the foundation of social development and anticipates the future. Calling upon its resources in the schools of Psychology, Social Welfare, and Education, Berkeley will be the first campus in the UC system to offer degree programs in Early Childhood Studies. UC Berkeley students may soon be able to select an inter-disciplinary undergraduate minor in Early Childhood Studies or choose an interdisciplinary masters degree in this field. A summer institute will provide leadership training for early education program managers, center directors, advocates, and policy leaders, so that what we learn at the Center can be replicated across the country.
