Unique Qualities of the Early Childhood Education Program
This program is tied to a nationally accredited, 5 star Kansas Quality rated, laboratory child-care center on the El Dorado campus. This lab is licensed for 121 children from 2 weeks to 12 years of age and is influenced by the Reggio Emilia philosophy as well as implementing concepts from the High Scope and Creative Curriculum approaches.
The program meets the needs of traditional daytime students as well as the nontraditional student who works during the day and needs to take classes at night or online. We teach at the Andover campus 3 nights a week, and we offer classes 4 nights a week in Wichita at various partnering early childhood facilities.
