Early Childhood Education
Early Childhood Education prepares students for careers in teaching and working with children. Through practicums, students develop the characteristics of successful teachers and childcare providers. Working in a live nursery school lab helps them learn to meet the developmental needs and interests of young children. Planning, developing, and implementing weekly lessons enables students to understand the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development of children.
Topics include principles of classroom management, interpersonal and communication skills, observation and assessment, guidance techniques, and the special needs child.
