Early Childhood Education is usually defined as the care and education of young children (from birth to age eight). The Department of Elementary Education - Early Childhood Education is based on the premise that children best learn in a material-rich learning environment where they spend most of their time playing. Thus, the goal of the early childhood undergraduate program at TED University is to train high quality early childhood teachers, capable of supporting the development and learning of young children. This is done in a rich learning environment and can contribute to early childhood education at the national and international level.

Moreover, graduates of the early childhood education program at TED University may choose to pursue graduate studies at our college. Early childhood professionals with a MS degree may become research assistants at universities, program specialists at TÜBİTAK, lead teachers and administrators at schools.
