The right early childhood education degree for you will depend on your career goals. An associate degree discusses basic principles in childhood development, cognition, and instructional design. These degrees can lead to careers as a pre-kindergarten teacher, Head Start teacher, or childcare worker. A bachelor's degree in early childhood education is the preparation you'll need to become a kindergarten or elementary school teacher in the public school system. These four-year programs discuss education theory and teaching skills and require hands-on teaching work. A master's or PhD in early childhood development provides more insight into education research methods and can prepare graduates to become curriculum designers, school principals, or college professors.
