Inspire a love of learning.
Children learn constantly. They learn through play, through interaction, and through a variety of activities. As a student in early childhood and elementary education, you will learn to facilitate growth in everyday moments, whether through fingerpaint or times tables, social interaction or academics.
Earning your early childhood education degree will prepare you to teach children in preschool through sixth grade. You will study a broad range of subjects, from reading and science to music and math.
You will also learn how to manage a classroom, how to build positive relationships with children, and how to help them develop interpersonal skills. Before you even begin student teaching, you will have more than 200 hours of experience in classrooms.
