Early Childhood Education (B.A.)

Overview

EDUOur early childhood education program prepares candidates to meet eligibility requirements for teacher licensure in early childhood education (ages 3-8) in the District of Columbia. Once licensed, candidates also may apply for reciprocity in other jurisdictions.

Students complete field-based experiences during their first and second years and a final semester in a school for a full-time student teaching internship. These student teaching internships are in public, charter and private school systems in the Washington metropolitan area, and placements are made by the university.

Our courses provide a core of knowledge, skills and field-based experiences and include performance assessments designed to demonstrate the teacher’s ability to impact student learning. The program is state approved and nationally recognized by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (N.A.E.Y.C.) and by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (N.C.A.T.E.). Course syllabi and classroom activities reflect the standards of the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (I.N.T.A.S.C.).

SPS offers the undergraduate degree in early childhood education in partnership with the School of Education.
