Early Childhood Education (MAT)

Kids love to learn. Their brains and bodies, however, aren’t simply miniature versions of an adult’s. They need safe outlets to express themselves socially and exert physical energy, and they need to be intellectually and emotionally nourished in ways that help them develop to their full potential.

If you’re fascinated by the idea of shaping children’s academic, social and cognitive skills at a critical age, explore Webster University’s M.A. in Early Childhood Education (MAT) program.

Our NCATE and DESE-accredited degree integrates four key aspects of early childhood education: child development, relationships with family and friends, developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) and curriculum content areas. You’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge it takes to design educational plans for all children, including those with special needs. You can also choose to focus on the age group or aspect you find most rewarding: infants and toddlers, pre-primary age children, kindergarten, early primary or parent education.
