The Child Development - Birth Through Kindergarten Option (licensure) at Appalachian State University focuses on children ages birth to five years and their families.

Five required field experiences develop students’ professional skills so they are ready for the workplace.
Appalachian is committed to introducing students to different cultures and teaching them how to live and interact in a global society.
