Childhood Certification Sequence (Grades 1 to 6)

Childhood Certification Sequence (Grades 1 to 6)

The Department of Early Childhood and Childhood Education offers undergraduate programs in Childhood Education that lead to Initial Certification in Childhood Education and Initial Certification in Childhood Education with a Bilingual Extension. Both are intended for students who wish to teach children in grades 1 to 6.

The major objective of the programs in Childhood Education are to provide preservice teachers with a focus on childhood philosophy, trends, curriculum, methods, materials, and research in the field of childhood education (Grades 1 to 6). The course of study reflects an integrated curriculum that provides an educational model based on child development and child study principles, New York State Education Department standards and core curriculum in each academic area, and National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education standards as described by the Association for Childhood Education International.
