#6 Best Online Bachelor’s in Child Development (2021)
At Point University, our online Bachelor of Science in Child Development program equips students to work with young children (birth through age 8) in a variety of settings, preparing activities and environments that foster physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive development.
Graduates of the child development program are equipped to work in preschools, camps, daycare centers, private schools, churches, non-profits, community organizations, and other settings that serve children and their families. While this program does not meet the requirements for Georgia state teacher certification, upon completion, students are eligible to apply for an Early Education Teacher Certificate (birth through pre-kindergarten) from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
