College Directory

The Directory of Missouri Early Childhood Certificate and Degree Programs is a comprehensive listing of the two- and four-year colleges that offer degrees in early childhood education. The Directory is intended to be used as a resource in finding information about the higher education opportunities across Missouri with regard to early care and education. Information is provided on: general college contacts, Early Childhood Department contacts, satellite campuses, current tuition, and the college’s web site. All colleges listed are regionally accredited and based in Missouri.

The Directory of Missouri Early Childhood Certificate and Degree Programs provides a “snapshot” of programs at each college. Changes in the programs listed here may occur at any time so please check with each college or university for current contacts and information.

T.E.A.C.H. MISSOURI would like to thank the Missouri Head Start Association and the Missouri Head Start State Collaboration Office for developing and funding the first Directory of Missouri Early Childhood Certificate and Degree Programs in 2003. Their initial interest and support of the project made the Directory a reality in Missouri. Since 2007, T.E.A.C.H. MISSOURI has taken responsibility for maintaining and updating the Directory.
