"I am now 55 years old and in the field of Early Childhood Education for 34 1/2 years. The BA on-line completion program for Early Childhood/Child Development was a life-altering experience. It confirmed what I knew, challenged me to learn more and gave me the words to express what Best Practices are in this field. It is a life choice for me and a commitment I joyfully continue, as I feel it is calling from God. I thank God for the opportunity of this experience."
- Cathy Jo Banas

"My experience with Concordia University has been a rewarding opportunity for me. I would recommend Concordia University to anyone I interact with on a daily basis. The program is well organized and the Instructors/Professors are well educated in the field of Early Childhood Education. The program pace is designed for working professionals."
- Ruby Belton
