The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Early Childhood Education degree program at Florida State College at Jacksonville prepares students to become highly effective pre-kindergarten through grade 3 teachers for public and private schools. The program offers courses that focus on providing developmentally appropriate teaching practices to future educators.


The Early Childhood Education curriculum at Florida State College at Jacksonville is designed to provide a practical hands-on application approach to understanding early childhood education. Students must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours, of which 60 hours are lower division general education courses, and in the upper division, 24 hours of professional core educational courses, and 36 hours of major concentration educational courses. Both the professional core and major concentration areas are challenging as students are required to have fingerprinting and background checks and complete over 150 hours of field work in a VPK through third grade setting.
