Early Childhood Development

  • Our program is authentic to the current workplace and professional field. Instruction is offered through hands-on experiences, role modeling, reading and research, lecture and demonstration. Students work as a cooperative team to complete classroom projects that enable them to learn how to work responsibly and professionally in an early childhood environment. Students read, write, and think creatively and critically on a daily basis. Assignments include reading, synthesizing and applying information gained from texts, literature, journals and internet sources, conducting research and communicating findings in both written and oral formats, and using appropriate computational concepts to solve problems. Junior and senior students have opportunities to gain experience while enrolled in teaching practicum at area professional early childhood and elementary programs. Graduates are prepared to obtain Office of Childcare Services preschool teacher certification.
