NORCROSS, Ga., Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ashworth College (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu/), a leading online school, unveils its online resource for those interested in the field of early childhood education. Ashworth has created a specialty group within its online Community to provide students and guests with industry best practices, career insights, and invaluable information for furthering their professional skills in early childhood education.

"Our goal is to be a trusted resource to those interested in early childhood education by providing timely and relevant content and dialog," said Amy Bernard, Director of Interactive Marketing for Ashworth College.
She went on to add "For our students, we wanted to create a comprehensive online learning environment where they can interact with others who have similar interests and goals, faculty, and working professionals in the education field. For prospective students, it also provides a forum to gather information and to ask questions in order to make informed decisions about their educational needs."
Ashworth has been educating working adults for the past 25 years. With the launch of the early childhood education group, Ashworth now provides a state-of-the-art online resource that shares professional content with non-students, as well as social networking opportunities for existing students. Group members and visitors will find:
- A network of motivated and engaged students willing to encourage others by sharing personal, professional and educational insights and successes.
- Timely and relevant content regarding all aspects of early childhood development, from trends and technological advancements to career opportunities.
- Online study groups comprised of current Ashworth students enrolled in one of its educational programs. Members offer assistance with lessons and provide moral support to group members.
- Insights from students. Prospective students will benefit by learning from current students on what it is like to be an Ashworth student, how to be successful as an online student, and about the Early Childhood Education curriculum.
Rising student enrollments at all levels of education have created increasing demand for those employed in early childhood education careers. The U.S. Department of Education projects the industry to grow as much as 38% through 2014.
