"I touch the future. I teach." - Christa McAuliffe
Our mission is to prepare student-centered educators to be professionals, leaders, scholars, and practitioners.
The Early Childhood Education (ECE) program consists of an academic major in ECE and a sequence of professional certification courses that lead to a P-3 (PreK-third grade) teacher licensure . Completion of the P-3 program or elementary education will enable candidates to work in Head Start , ECEAP, blended preschools, kindergartens, and primary grades in the public schools. The course work offers a combination of theory, methods, and field experiences in a variety of early childhood education settings.
Upon admission to the Early Childhood Education program students are required to declare a major (ECE) and an approved minor. The major leads to an ECE endorsement which enhances a teaching career working with young children.
