This option is for students who want to teach infants through third grade children. Students should consult the Northeastern State University transfer catalog and work with an academic counselor at TCC or NSU to carefully select courses that will meet the baccalaureate and associate degree programs. Students in this program should plan to take the Oklahoma General Education Test during the last semester at TCC. Upon completion of the four-year curriculum at NSU, students will be prepared to apply for an Oklahoma Teacher’s Certificate in Early Childcare. A grade of “C” or better is required in the coursework for this curriculum and students must maintain a 2.75 GPA to graduate from Northeastern State University.
As a nationally accredited program, the TCC School of Child Development and Education subscribes to the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children Early Childhood Associate degree accreditation.
