Early Childhood Leadership & Advocacy Program

About our program

Shauna Adams

Let me introduce myself and some rewarding online program options for early childhood teachers, leaders and advocates.

My name is Dr. Shauna Adams, and I coordinate an exciting online program designed by, and for, early childhood teachers, leaders and advocates. After working with busy early childhood professionals for more than a decade, it became clear to me and my colleagues that many existing bachelor's and master's degree programs do not meet the needs of the working professional.

To address the demand for a responsive program, we brought our early care and education partners together to identify the needs of the field and to design a program that meets those needs.

The University of Dayton is a leader in the field of early childhood education, providing outstanding, cutting-edge preservice and inservice programs. This part-time online degree program:

  • Gives credit for work-related training.
  • Supports the Early Childhood Career Lattice by building on an associate's degree and earning credit toward a bachelor's and/or master's degree.
  • Is stackable, lean and affordable.
  • Comes from a university with a tradition of excellence.
