What is the Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, with EFL (English as a Foreign Language) Concentration?

The Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, with EFL (English as a Foreign Language) Concentration is a program designed to teach children from birth to 6 years old. This degree is conceived to be able to accompany children in the discovery of the world around them, giving them the opportunity to be creative and to take advantage of their immediate environment to learn without realizing that they are involved in a learning process.

The degree in Early Childhood Education, with EFL (English as a Foreign Language) Concentration, is set up as a degree of four years in duration, which enables students to exercise professionally as a teacher during the period of Early Childhood Education, both in Public Schools as well as in the State-Sponsored Subsidized (“Concertada”, in Spanish) and Private Schools. At the end of their studies, students obtain a Diploma in Communication Skills and Foreign Language Studies (Institute of Modern Languages).

You will learn to transmit skills such as language or movement.

With studies in the teaching of children, you will learn to transmit skills as important as language, movement, the ability to relate to other children, conflict-solving and learning to become progressively more independent.

Also, if you wish to do so, you may obtain the DECA (“Declaración Eclesiástica de Competencia Académica”, in Spanish), or Ecclesiastical Declaration of Academic Competence, which allows you to become a Religion teacher.
