UW-River Falls offers a program in Early Childhood through Middle Childhood for students who are elementary majors with an early childhood minor, which meets certification requirements to teach Early Childhood through Middle Childhood - Regular Education. In addition to providing further enrichment in techniques for instruction in the primary grades, this minor and certification increases the range of potential employment for an elementary education major. Those who may seek employment in preschools and 4 or 5 year old kindergartens, existing day care centers, nursery schools, child and family education programs, or those intending to start their own private pre-school, should investigate the opportunities opened via an early childhood minor.
