Our early childhood PreK-3 licensure provides you with the knowledge and training to pursue a career in early childhood education. The curriculum places a heavy focus on the study of children from birth-to-kindergarten age and pre-kindergarten (pre-k) to third grade. Students planning to seek PreK-3 licensure must complete the Professional Core as outlined by the Department of Education and follow the course of study as outlined in the Child and Family Studies major. This comprises a full semester of integrated professional practicum experience and one full semester of student teaching in public school settings. Students who acquire licensure in early childhood will be certified to teach PreK-3 grade.
