M.S.-Early Childhood Education Teacher (Grades Birth-2)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The program in early childhood education prepares reflective teachers of children from birth through grade two. Our graduates deeply understand how children grow and develop and can successfully guide young children from diverse cultural, social, and language backgrounds. Central to the program's philosophy is a commitment to provide quality education for all young children and advocate for linguistic and cultural developmentally effective practices in early childhood programs and schools. Based on the continual expansion of knowledge about child development, our curriculum is vibrant and addresses emerging issues in the field including infancy and brain research, curriculum design and play, authentic assessment and technology. Students are encouraged to push the boundaries of what is known about early childhood education, as witnessed in our partnership with the Lincoln Center Institute, in which our students explore the relationship between aesthetic education and early childhood educational practices. The program is nationally recognized by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
