This early childhood education program takes a holistic approach to addressing the diverse needs of children and families to ensure high quality and equitable classroom experiences for each and every child. This degree concentration can lead to initial birth through kindergarten teaching certification and will be offered only on the Armstrong Campus starting in Fall 2020. Applications for the first cohort are currently being accepted.
