Student teacher working with children in the child development laboratory

Early Childhood Development and Education


The Early Childhood Development and Education major (ECDE) is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge base of early childhood educators for their important work with young children. The Blended Teacher Certificate degree program offers students an unprecedented level of comprehensive skill opportunities needed to promote the learning and development of young children birth through eight years or age.

Students will take courses from the general education core, education core, education methods, child development and family relations, and special education. They will complete training in settings for infants and toddlers, preschoolers, and primary grade children. Completion of this program will prepare students to meet the required standards for eligibility for the Early Childhood/Early Childhood Special Education Blended Certificate and become teachers of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and children kindergarten through grade three.

Children’s development research illuminates the critical care and education needs of young children. With this recognized, the need for additional teachers of young children is on the rise. Certified graduates would be employed in public and private schools, programs such as Head Start, and infant toddler programs associated with Health and Welfare.
