Early Childhood Education

We prepare students to use a constructivist, developmentally appropriate approach to educate young children and to prepare an inclusive, play-based environment that invites inquiry, autonomy and responsive social interaction while supporting learning in the cognitive, social/emotional, and physical/motor domains.  We provide students with the opportunity to develop communication skills to advocate for the well-being of young children through parent and community education and involvement in child welfare organizations.
