A great teacher can mean the difference between giving a student a jump-start or playing catchup. Our Bachelor of Science in Education/Early Childhood Education, an initial licensure program, teaches you the skills to give children from birth through age 8 or grade 3 the best possible chance of success in school — and beyond. You won’t be in this alone.
Our program support specialist can help you navigate teacher licensure and credentialing requirements. We’ll also help you with school placements for your clinical experience and clinical practice through our close partnerships with hundreds of school districts nationwide. And you can waive up to 21 credits toward your degree if you’ve earned your Child Development Associate (CDA) credential.
