Early Childhood (Birth-Grade 2) Education

Early experiences impact later development and learning.

The Early Childhood Education Program is committed to the growth and well being of children from birth to eight-years of age, and shapes teachers who understand the affect early experiences have on later development and learning.

The program engages teachers in collaborative work that is interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and inquiry-based. In-class didactic experiences and activities, field-work placements and student teaching are all planned to increase candidate awareness and sensitivity to the development of children and to provide insight into the physical, social, emotional, cultural, intellectual and creative life of a child. In addition, differences of culture, language, ethnic background, gender and ability among children permeate every aspect of the curriculum.
